Memorial Day Weekend

I grilled yummo burgers on the patio of love for the girls and I. 

Saturday was rained out. Glad we were not at a campground!

A bit of hail as well.


At the beach ALL DAY on Saturday.

The Pearl of the Lake

Saw this Northern Water Snake at the Swimming Beach

Red Wing Blackbird chasing an eagle

Mary Emma found this GORGEOUS Lake Superior Agate. 

Margaret found this HUGE coral fossil

Not sure about this one....coral? coprolite?

Memorial Day Parade and Service

More Beach

We watched this helicopter take off and land.

So we went to have a look.

Helicopter rides only $100.00 for two. We passed.


Bridging and School

The girls and I set up the ballroom so we had a bit of time to play

How beautiful is this place!

My troop.

Last week we studied pointillism and it morphed into henna.

They just used paint, so it was fun and washed off easily.

 Marge's grammar and spelling

Mary E's vocabulary and grammar

Keeping track of books read.

We still bring out the cursive books once in a while.


CNN Student news is part of our every school day. 

Both girls have finished math. Margaret has moved on to the next level, Saxon 6/7, and Mary Emma will work on Saxon Algebra 1/2 over the summer in preperation for beginning algebra 1 this fall. We plan on continuing school over the summer half days allowing ample time for camping, vacation, and beach time!

And we all could use a bit of phy-ed!



The day after turning 13 is confirmation day. Big weekend for this girl!
