Anyway....this is what we've been doing. I was very sick with a stomach virus for a good week, and then we've been so busy with end-of-the-school-year projects and "stuff" that we haven't done a whole lot of lessons after school. But we have been spending a lot of family time together.
For instance... my nephew graduated high school! He's attending the same small-town school that I attended. It was bittersweet to go back after all these years. I go home often, but I usually just go to my mom's house or around town. I have only been up to the school a handful of times....usually for an occasional football game. But this time, we got to see the inside of the school for the first time in almost 20 years. It's sad how money runs out, buildings get older, and some folks lose their pride in their town and school. But I was soooo very proud of my nephew, Daniel. He has worked so hard and I was filled with pride as he received his diploma.
Small town graduation. The funny thing is that Daniel had more people in his graduating class than I did! :)
Loo and our Graduate!
In other exciting news..... we have 2 award-winning musicians in our home! This week, Trey and Addie were asked to participate for their school in a solo contest at a neighboring school. They each received a medal and the highest score possible in the contest. So proud of my little musicians!

So there you have it - our month of May in a nutshell thus far. We will spend the rest of the month finishing up at school, attending awards ceremonies and class parties. They get out of school June 7, so I need to start planning some lessons for the summer. I'm also co-directing VBS this summer, so they will be learning and helping quite a bit with that.
Hopefully, I can keep up with my posts and continue to update. For now, I'm going to go snuggle-buggle with my sweet babies. Hope you all do the same. Blessings...
