What's in the Box?

I have next week all set up for school. We will have a 3-day school week since Monday is a holiday. I think that we are ready to get back to work and I am glad we took this time off. It should be a good week. Here is what is in the box:

It will be a bit busy this next month since we will be working on our 4-H projects in addition to normal schoolwork. I think it will be a fun week next week and hope we have a good transition back into schoolwork.
