It's May!! The busiest month of the year for mamas with kiddos in school.  I seriously don't remember even THINKING about this month before the peeps started school. It was just another month.  But not now!!  Now it is the end.  And the beginning.  And the beginning of the end. 

The lessons wrap up with recitals, the rehearsals conclude with performances, the tryouts payoff in positions, the tests result in final grades.  Everyone has something on the calendar this week!  My handy I-phone keeps telling me that several of the days I am double-booked.  Well, yes!  You're right Siri dear.  We are double booked...

And it's FUN and

And the truth is, I wouldn't trade it for the world.  My favorite thing is to celebrate my children's success.  I love watching them work hard for something and finish it strong.  It delights me to see them pleased with themselves.  Life isn't all about achievements, but it sure seems like MAY IS!!  In response, we make room in the calendar for everything little detail.  We cheer boldy and whistle loudly; we make costumes and write reports, we study and memorize and practice and pray. 

 Most of all, we pray.

We pray for God's peace, His presence and His will.
We seek His glory and humbly honor Him as the Giver of all good gifts.

Then we gas up the mini-van and hang on for the ride.
