I love that it's spring and we are heading into summer months, but May itself is always rough. There are so many end-of-school-year activities, recitals, concerts, and finals, even an AP test for Crafty. Not that all of those things are bad; they are just stressful.
Last week we had rain all week, so most of the ballgames were cancelled and now they are being rescheduled into the next couple of weeks. Really? It was hard enough before we had to put those extra games onto the calendar.
The other thing I am not fond of is pictures. Everybody wants to take pictures; all the ball teams, the dance groups... and most of them end up costing me a bunch of extra money. Because honestly, who doesn't love a pic of their kid being the star of the team?
And this one just kills me. Our school has scheduled a reunification drill for this month. As if I didn't have enough stress already! That's all I need to think about, a huge disaster for our beautiful valley. Couldn't we have arranged that one in April?
All that said, I love the warm days and cool evenings, the green grass and the abundant flowers. Summer is coming and I can almost taste it, can't you?
