Happy May Day!

This year is just moving along at lightning speed. May 1st--milestone for us as homeschoolers--just a month left till summer break! This week I plan on creating our last month's schedules and then letting the boys go at it! I love this last month of school--seems like we get tons accomplished and always have happy hearts. They can see the end of another school year and everyone stays focused and on track. That makes for a happy mom!

There is tons of stuff happening this weekend---

-Jordan is playing the the semi-finals of the Premier Division 1 State Soccer League - if they can win on Saturday, finals are on Sunday. She is so thankful to be able to be in this game--she has a new outlook on soccer. Just the thought that she could be out for an extended time period showed her how much she loves to be in that goal. Go Allegra!

-Austin & Chase have their dress rehearsal and 2 performances this weekend of the play, "At the Hop". Love that they have worked so hard over the last 3 months and it will all pay off this weekend. Austin plays a jock and Chase is a nerd---pretty perfect casting, if you ask me!

-3 baseball games this weekend-2 for Austin and 1 for Luke---they don't even overlap-should be able to see all three.

-One of the biggest community garage sales is this Saturday in Mill Creek. Literally hundreds of different sales --one of my favorite days of the year!

-AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL THAT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND-IT'S
NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY!

I love that there is a national holiday for those of us that preserve our memories- okay so it's not exactly a national holiday, but it's fun nonetheless!

So my schedule looks something like this:

Friday: Garage Sale in the morning - school in the afternoon - scrap in the evening
Saturday: Garage Sale in the morning - baseball & soccer in the afternoon - scrap in the evening
Sunday: Watch play in the morning at church - baseball in the afternoon - possible soccer in the afternoon too - scrap in the evening

Looking good!

Tons of stuff going on today in the Scrapbooking area of my life.
