May at our place

Days are still very monotonous (as much as can be so with kids around) around here, but a bit of Spring Cleaning and Gardening is woven into our days, letting us know that things are turning toward the summer. You wouldn’t know it today, as the temperatures are in the 50s today. Seems very abnormal, although a bit nice.

Here are a few pictures to let you see what is going on around our place:

  1. It looks like you've been having lots of happy family times! The garden looks great, and I love your herbs in the pot.

    Today the weather was beautiful! My husband built a sandbox for the children and found a place with free sand (if you shovel it yourself!).

    Yesterday my oldest daughter and I went to a friend's house and learned how to make soap. It was so fun!

    Hope the rest of your week is blessed!


I love and welcome your comments. Please be nice.
