may book of days

 Papa has been playing and repairing his clarinets.

S learns to ride her bike without training wheels!

We celebrated Mother's Day.

We visited our local agricultural museum.

We also visited our local science museum!

The children have discovered the wondrous possibilities of hot glue!

We celebrated the end of the school year with our homeschool group.

E, M, J and S participated in the homeschool play.

J won first place in the derby car races!

We all signed up for the summer reading program at our library.

E played beautifully in her piano recital!

We watched our nephew/cousin graduate from high school.

Papa was promoted to Captain in the State Guard and participated in the security detail for the annual
Trail of Honor.

Also during this month, as a family, we learned Matthew 6:9-13 and read The Ordinary Princess, poetry of A. A. Milne, and continued The Hobbit.  Last week, we brought home our ninth foster baby, Gracie!
It was truly a fun and busy month!

I enjoyed reading about your May. That cake for the homeschooling event was beautiful! I also love all of the decorations and the cake for your daughter's birthday.

We just started The Hobbit today. I think we are really going to like it. It is our last read aloud for the official school year (well the last read aloud for my older children....I still have 3.5 books left for my younger set.)

Have a great weekend!

How fun to get a peek at your family and all the fun you're having!
