May Happenings!

We had so much fun this month. We went to the Florence Griswold Art Museum that sits along the riverbanks in Old Lyme. This beautiful tree is over 250 years old, and artists have left their mark on it over the years.

the picture above is my most favorite from that day, unbeknownst to me, mom was taking a picture of me on the old stump while I was taking these pictures of the kids(too cute)!

Nate and I in the middle of a ticklefest in the garden at the museum

This month also marked Nates last day at Headstart. His teacher, Ms. Judy was just the best!
next year he will go to the Intergrated Preschool at our local elementary

We also had the opportunity for Travis & Emma to be in our towns Memorial Day parade. This was Emma's second year marching with her brownie troop. She was the hit of her troop with the flags proudly displayed in her ponytails. I got towalk with Emmas troop and Eric walked with Travis.

Travis marched with the 5th graders from Montville who graduated from the DARE prograqm. We were very proud of him, He marched the whole 2 miles and didn't complain (maybe being behind the fire truck that was throwing candy had something to do with it, Who knows)

This was our kitchen 5 years ago, the top & bottom pics are where the stove and dishwasher are now

this picture is where are sink is now

This is what our sink area looks like now, I designed the cabinets and dad made them. The cast iron sink was the only thing that was salvagable

This is the lastest addition, I found this shelf at a garage sale for $1.00, the glass in the doors were broken so we replaced them with chicken wire and a fresh coat of paint and TADA, a place to keep all of my pastas. My dad also made the bottom cabinets here as well.

We finished the dining room table yesterday and I will post those pics later this week.
