It's May!

Happy May Day everyone!
Exciting times!

Kaitlyn made it home last night from college. We were so happy to see her. Her car was loaded to the max, but luckily she had plenty of help to unload when she got home. We were pulling into the garage after a trip to the store, right after she arrived. She was so excited to get Jadyn out of the car, that she almost forgot to hug her mom first. :) "Where's my baby girl?!"
She was a bit tired from her 9 hour drive, but just bursting with happiness and very talkative. We talked until it was time for all of us to fall into bed.

Lauryn and Aaron bought their first home yesterday. Congratulations to them! They've been living in an apartment for the past 2 years and they are very excited to be moving soon. They've lived about 20 minutes or so from us, but they're moving to our town. They'll be about 10 minutes from us now and we're excited about having them closer. One of these days I'll post a picture of them with their new place. They'll be doing some cleaning, painting and changing of this and that this weekend. The following weekend is their big move.

Today's a day to just relax a bit, do a few things around here and let Jadyn get outside. Woo hoo, the trees are beginning to get their leaves! The grass is green, the flowers are coming up. Jadyn keeps asking if the flowers are here yet. :) She loves to see the robins outside and points them out each day. We've had such an assortment of water fowl at the pond in the last week. Alan's spotted at least 3 types of birds out there that we've never seen before. We think maybe it's because of the odd and cold spring we've had. Maybe these are birds that would normally live further north? Not sure really. What a blessing to have the wildlife right outside our back door.
