Oooooooh, 31/50.  That's not great.  Wow, I guess I should have been looking at my list throughout the entire Summer so I'd remember to complete some of the events.  :(  Well, it's not too late.  The beauty of homeschooling is that we can still do some of these Summer things during the day in the Fall!  

Here's to a fantastic Labor Day (spent at the farm, with family, food, fun), and a great school year (I have butterflies in my tummy already)!
