May 5: Josh took me on a motorcycle ride tonight. It was heavenly! The world smells divine with all the blooming lilacs and blossoming trees right now!
May 6: Micah ran well at the district track meet today. He gets down on himself for not being at the front of the pack, and i keep telling him that with time he will be (most of the runners he raced against this year were older 7th and 8th graders). After the meet was over, I treated him to dinner and he smiled when he opened his fortune cookie because it reaffirmed what I'd been telling him ;).

May 14: Amazing Race (the only show our whole family watches together) is now done for the season, and we're all disappointed in who won it this time around. [the dancers won, but we really wanted the gay guys to]

May 23: Josh and I both only went to Disneyland once each when we were kids. And neither of us have ever been back. This is the year we're taking our kids on their "ONCE" trip there, too! We just booked our hotel reservations last night for November's trip, and I gotta admit it made me a little giddy with excitement!
May 25: This is what it looks like to meet my college class deadlines miraculously ahead of schedule! Ahhhh.... so happy to finally take a moment just to breathe and enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of spring.
May 25: Tonight was the Awards Ceremony at SHS...these two unknowingly dressed alike! What a handsome, classy, talented duo!
May 30: Today has been a glorious taste of the summer that's about to begin (only 1 1/2 more days of school left). We worked and played together as a family: planting the garden and pumpkin patch, then going on a motorcycle ride, hiking, and cooking tinfoil dinners over a campfire. I've truly loved spending the day with my family today!
