Back to School 2015

Monday marked the official beginning of 8th, 6th, and 4th grade around here. The Challenge program with our Classical Conversation group started two weeks ago, so Hannah's summer was cut a little short. She handled it well. We did a little math last week to keep her company... before we headed to the pool. 

First Day of Challenge B for Hannah

My sweet 8th grader

Will's first year of "middle school" - 6th grade

4th grade for Peter

I do think this may be Henry's favorite day of the year. School starting means
his people stay home more during the day. 

And a little five year rewind.
Only FIVE years.

Where to begin when it has been many months since a blog post? 
How about a big summer photo post?

We just returned home from a blissful week in Maine (photos to come in another post) and I am now buried in laundry and school planning. Hannah begins Challenge B tomorrow! Summer break is leaving us and we are all feeling a little bluesy about saying goodbye.

But as lovely as this summer has been for our family, we are feeling ready for some structure and routine. I guess it's has to be time. Saxon Math is sitting here on my desk staring me down. 

A sampling of our sweet summer season...

We started the summer in Boca Grande.

Linden Vineyard with Papa and the Flemings
summer swim team
"Superhero" Meet.
Lots of very early Saturdays.
Will's off to Deerfoot for 2 weeks!

Hannah and Peter sold Lemonade for Peter's fishing pole fund.

He sold plenty of lemonade!
This made all that sidewalk sitting worth it! 
camp pick-up

Clearly, he loved it.  
Cousins visit DC!

These two. Cousin fun at the lake.

Mount Vernon

A couple weeks ago, we went back to Mount Vernon. It is one of our favorite local field trips! ... And so lovely in the fall! Because it was a spectacular day, we decided to take the river tour. It was well worth it.
