August 14-20 Our Homeschool Weekly Report, week 38: The King, and We Have Finished Our 19th Year of Homeschooling!

Abby and Katie S. after their Musicamp Production.
I held auditions for the play our homeschool group will be putting on this year. We also went to a play that two of my former students were in.
The younger boys went for plane flights with the Young Eagles program.
We made preparations for our family camp. This is the king's crown Katie made for the Medieval feast. Steven had a medical procedure done and Midas went to the vet's (he now is 26 pounds).
We had friends over for a game nights twice this week.

Camp Bergenholtz starts tomorrow!
Join me at...


  1. We're going to be learning about the War of the Roses next week. We'll be starting back up with school then, no more fun-schooling (not that I got anywhere near as much funschooling done as I wanted to).

  2. The Young Eagle's program, looks like a good time! I think that is how one of my nephew's started prior to getting his pilot's license by the time he was 18!

  3. I love the goblets. Might use the idea next year for Passover for an upgraded Elijah's cup!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
