This is one momma who will be very glad to turn the calendar page to June.
We knew May was going to be a humdinger – and it was.
Why? Just take a look at the numbers:
Fifteen days away from home.
Three different states – on eight different trips.
Over 2500 miles driven.
Don’t even ask how much we spent on gas.
Four days with Matt home. (Too short!)
One family reunion.
Two nieces and two nephews in a play.
A few tears.
Two home school conferences.
Too many thunderstorms.
50 some broilers.
One huge bull calf that needed to be pulled and then – after we heroically saved his life – he died anyway.
Two huge gardens planted, including 40 some tomato plants.
Four broken lawnmowers and one really overgrown lawn.
We made it.
We started the month in winter and ended it in summer. I guess spring happened at some point, but I think I missed it.
I’d say we filled this month with just about as much as we could! And it was all good.
Now it’s time to move on.
But first – a very long nap.

And I bet you’d do it all over again 🙂
So sad about the calf :-
Our May and June are looking very busy but I’m praising the Lord for it’s ALL a good busy 🙂
It sounds like a fabulous month with the exception of the baby bull 😦 Hoping the mom made it OK…
I feel your pain…an joy. Our May was one for the record books as well. Never thought I’d be anxious for June.
