Coming Up for Air

Coming up for air.  Yep, that's how most teachers feel in June.  The month of May is BUSY, BUSY, BUSY.  There is barely time to eat or sleep.  There is certainly not time to blog.  But I have thought about blogging and missed it and I'm glad to be coming up for air.

Around here we are getting adjusted to our summer schedule.  We're getting caught up.  And we are having summer fun.  To kick off our summer right, we took Nate and Maddy to the zoo.

Nate was a pro at the Carousel.  Maddy wasn't sure about it at first and wanted GP to hold her.  By the end she was loving it and wanted to ride again.

Then we had a play date at home with Maddy.  We found a toad while working in the garden.  Mr. Toad was very exciting and kept Nate and Maddy entertained.

That's Jeff holding the toad.  I, myself, am not into toads that much.

Yesterday Nate and I ventured to Dayton for the day to visit Grandma and Poppy.  Poppy helped Nate build a bird feeder for our yard.  Nate loved using Poppy's tools and was really good at it.

So that's what we've been doing around here.  And I'm back.  Not sure I'll be here every day.  But I'll be here more often than the month of May.
