This week we enjoyed our last days of summer.
We went Letterboxing in Chesapeake City, Maryland.
We had a Fruit and Cheese Tasting.
We enjoyed grilling and a hot dog bar (with all the fixin's)...
and a Sundae Bar.
We made Mini Shadowbox Summer Memories Fridge Magnets...
while Brenda made this shadowbox at her house.
We had a candlelight dinner...
lit by the the lanterns we had made.
And that was the end of Camp Bergenholtz for 2014.
On Tuesday, we began our first day of school for the 2014-2015 school year, our 20th year of homeschooling, with our school cone tradition. We started out with English (The Logic of English, Lesson 1.1: Phonograms and Consonants and Vowels) and Math (Learn Math Fast: Book 1: Adding Multiple Double Digit Numbers and Book 2: Adding Fractions) ...

and then had our school lunch. I had planned to take First Day of School photos at the park, but it was way too hot, so we decided to put them off for a cooler, more fall-like day.
