Mowing lawns and planting and expanding our garden have been big projects, since we have quite a big place! Plus, with all the rain we've had, it has slowed things down considerably. The garden has been too muddy to plant and the lawns too wet to mow. But we've got most of it under control and our pond is full!
Our two big events of the month of May were graduation and Young Chautuaqua, which were both fun and fulfilling!
Young Chautuaqua and graduation came back to back on the 21st, and then Graduation on the 22nd! It was interesting! It happened that way last year, too!
This is Bobbie, our teacher in YC. She is so very wonderful! I love her! She has been such a great inspiration to me!
Now for the Young Chautuaquans! This is Jacob, and he portrayed soldier/actor Audie Murphy, doing a splendid job!
Joseph, my big little brother, portrayed General Joshua Chamberlain. Oh! His story is so good! (And for all those who have waited, this is Joseph--with a mustache!)
Sam play General Thomas Jackson! His story moves me to tears every time I hear it! He had such a sad life!
Zac portrayed Albert Einstein! Oh, he did a good job! Very cute kid!
Hannah played Rosa Parks! She is such a sweet little girl! I had fun with her!
Hayley played Pocahontas! Oh, another great, wonderful job there! Fantastic!
Ethan portrayed Patrick Henry. Yay!!!! You should have heard him when he cried "Give me liberty or give me death!"
Jesse played George Washington! Wonderful job, Jesse!
