What we did in May

We were fairly busy in May and had quite a few momentous happenings.

We finished our first year of homeschooling. We celebrated by going to Lichterman Nature Center and then to O'Charley's for lunch. Our friend Kelly and her son Mitchell went with us.

Ashley had her Kindergarten graduation. Her class recited the poem Trees and the Christian Cadence.

By Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see

a poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by kids like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Christian Cadence:

Leader: I don’t know but I’ve been told
Kids: (repeat)
Leader: We’re gonna walk on streets of gold
Kids: (repeat)
Leader: I’ve been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
Kids: (repeat)
Leader: filled with the Holy Spirit I am
Kids: (repeat)

Leader: sound off
Kids: one, two,
Leader: sound off
Kids: three, four,
Leader: sound off
Kids: one, two, one, two… THREE, FOUR!

Leader: The devil’s mad and I am glad
Kids: (repeat)
Leader: He’s on the run and that’s no fun
Kids: (repeat)
Leader: The King of Kings is coming back
Kids: (repeat)
Leader: Gonna clean his clock and break his back
Kids: repeat

Leader: sound off
Kids: one, two,
Leader: sound off
Kids: three, four,
Leader: sound off,
Kids: one, two, one, two…THREE, FOUR!

Samantha had her 10th birthday. We went to the Olive Garden to celebrate. She also made it to Girls II (one level up from where she was) in gymnastics. She had been striving for this so we are very proud of her!

Due to our dog Chloe this doll experienced an untimely death by decapitation within 20 minutes of being released from his box. :(

Jeff also celebrated a birthday.

This happened in June but for Samantha's birthday she received tickets to see ECW and Smackdown live at the Fedex Forum. Obviously Jeff Hardy is her favorite. And yes ,Jeff and I are most definitely worried about what the boys will look like that she will eventually bring home. Of course that is like 11 years from now since she won't be allowed to date until she is 21. LOL!

We plan on spending the rest of our summer relaxing, reading, swimming, doing a little bit of Math and just hanging out with each other and friends. We are also hoping to go on a trip to Minnesota to visit family.
