Lets start with my favorite part....
Tess's birthday festivities!
We started out with a friend party that involved a lot of climbing.
the dog theme was a hit and so fitting for Miss Tess.
May also brought our first Twins game of the season.
dear friends but as usual it went too fast.
we soaked up the sun outside.
the lack of grass makes for a great space to play in the mud.
May also meant days walking to our favorite place.....
The end of the school year means one of the girls' favorite days:
all this outside time meant allergy season for one of our ladies...
we finally did the deed and had her allergies tested.
Not to worry, she is only allergic to about everything in the air outside and dust mites in the house....of course we have no dust. So May marked the start of allergy shots for Sydney for the next 5 years. A bummer for her but I believe it to be the right decision.
In May I feel like I noticed a big change in Sydney growing up, she started taking charge of her allergy medication, took her first overnight school camping trip (sniff, sniff) and worked on a big school project. Her project was a "Neighborhood Guide Book." It was a lot of fun to see what she wrote about and the photographs she took of her favorite neighborhood spots. These are a few of her favorite spots:
the old water tower
the fire station
we were really proud of the finished product of her project.
May was fun, May was busy and sometimes a little crazy and now we are looking forward to sitting here and relaxing as we have 2 more days left of school and our porch project is winding down!
Happy June everyone, I am thankful for May and we have a lot to look forward to!
