We added some veggies to do a salad garden.

We always make plans for ideas we'd like to accomplish in summer. Places we'd like to visit. But then life happens and we never arrive at those destinations. So, at the beginning of the month, I bought some tickets to the Akron Rubber Ducks game. We decided to go to the minor leagues.
Monday, we enjoyed the annual Hayesville, Memorial Day parade. Kicked off by our veterans color guard marching by.
If you look really hard, can you see it? In the crook of the branch is a humming bird on her tiny nest. Super cute to watch.

So when you teach 12 year olds, it is important to keep them busy in May. They need to be busy, busy, busy or they cause trouble, trouble trouble! So I have some projects going on in the classroom.
4 of my 6 classes just completed Ancient China projects. My favorite one is above. The boy in blue did a fantastic job putting it together. It was super creative. I have never had broccoli trees brought in before!

The fact that it might not be done by the due date?
The fact that the weather won't cooperate?
The fact that my spouse procrastinates?
The fact that my spouse is on call three weeks in a row?
Hmm, bones of contention, can't wait until this is finished and I don't have to answer to a grant committee. We missed the deadline....grrr.
I need a break!

So, it's pretty awesome to get to see some of your great friends. It doesn't hurt any that they live in the warm South Carolina. So we often bother them over Spring Break before it get ridiculously hot down there.
Our first full day down there, we spent it in Greenville, SC. We enjoyed a nice day walking in the park.
The last day of the trip we venture up to Hendersonville, NC to do some hiking in Dupont State Park. It was beautiful.
