Good morning, girlies :)
I'm glad you joined me for coffee today.
I had a bit of a breakdown last night when I sat down to type this post and realized
my modem had completely bit the dust.
How dependent we've become on being on-line!
I felt so abandoned, so deserted. I may be stretching it a bit...I just read instead.
But you can bet your bottom dollar that Mr. Fix-It was here at 8am this morning to replace our pooped out modem.
Now I'm back...yeah!
Now on to the coffee....
if you walked through my door right now, I'd give you a big hug and tell you how thankful I am to have you as a friend. My last post was straight from the heart, and it's always a little scary putting something like that out there. But your words of wisdom and encouragement blessed me over and over.
I've read through all your words over again and again and I'm just humbled by your faith and strength.
Thank you for being a friend to me.
After that conversation, I'd show you my May calendar and you would probably pass out
you'd show me your blacked out squares and we'd laugh together, maybe adding a little something stronger to our coffee cups ;)
Yes, May is a crazy one....
and in our school, spring makes us all a little silly.
We're ready for the great outdoors.
We're ready for Popsicles and sprinklers.
We're ready to be done with fact sheets and grammar for a while.
Even though it's busy, there's something beautiful about the end of the school year as well.
May is "sum it all up" time.
May is time to show off our stuff...speaking from a school kid's point of view.
It's time for...
last report cards
end-of-the-year field trips
track and field day
spring baseball tournament
Did I forget anything?
Not all those things are applicable to our life, but many of them are.
I love seeing all the year's hard work pay off in the form of a round of applause or a big gold star.
Last week was piano recital.
This week is baseball tourney, dance recital (a friend's daughter), and track and field day.
Next week is our Hutchinson School Annual Art Show and the end-of-the year field trip with our homeschool group.

It's busy, but it's beautiful.
As mamas, we also work hard all year long, and watching our kids smile with delight and take their bows is our reward.
And that's good enough for me.
I hope you're enjoying your May...now that it's over half-way over. :)
An end to a school year, a beginning to a summer.
What a sweet transition.
Have a great day, my sweet friends.
