5 on 5: May

Life has been full.  It has been full of good things, but it the business of it all can still be overwhelming at times. We have had so many BIG life moments in my home, it has had my head spinning a bit.  I haven’t picked up my camera much lately, but I do have five favorites from the last month.

My husband and I drove up to San Jose for the last time.  I finished my first year of school for Spiritual Direction.  We took the long way home and admired the super bloom.  The yellow was disarming! We have stayed in the same little town each time we have gone up.  Most homes have fruit and vegetable gardens and backyard chickens! It really is wonderful up there. I will miss it this summer.  

Our oldest daughter, Kyle, graduated from college.  She has worked so hard these last years. She has already found a job at our local elementary school as a SPED teacher.  She has loved working there and is made to help others see their full potential.

My husband and youngest daughter celebrated another birthday together.  Andy’s mom had always made a carrot cake for him for his birthday.  Because she is now in hospice, he took it on to make it this year with Sam. Watching the tradition move from one generation to the next was beautiful and heartbreaking all at once.

I am slowly getting used to this new stage in life.  It has held many emotions, but I am starting to find a routine and settling into it.  I wrote a little about it this week.

Head on over to Vanessa’s blog to see what she has been up to this last month.
