Celebrating May

I'm happy to share that our house is put back together again and back on the market! It's been a busy patch friends, living in a construction zone in our house and working through negotiations on the duplex. Have I told you the funny story of our house situation? Ages ago, when we both taught full-time, we bought a fixer-upper 1920 duplex. We rented one side and lived in the other while we fixed it up. Then, after we (mainly Cory) put in new kitchens, new bathrooms, new ceilings, a fence, a deck, a shed, a brick porch and landscaping- whew!- the house next door went on the market. With a second baby in my belly we were enchanted with its big back-yard (for the city) and larger rooms. So we bought it and turned the duplex into a full-time rental. They're both on the market now and I actually need to go get our house ready for a showing this afternoon. But I wanted to stop in first and share a few pictures from our weekend's May Day festivities. We're involved with a lovely Waldorf group and this was our first Waldorf festival. It was also my first May Day ever, which was a lot of fun!

As you can see there were grey skies- and light sprinkles- all afternoon, but it didn't stop the festivities. We made quick May Day crowns for the kiddos, from braided roving and little wool flowers needle-felted in, and concluded with our May Pole. Since most of our children are preschooler age & younger we didn't create any elaborate patterns this year. We just tried to steer them around the May Pole in the same direction! (smile)

Wishing you a lovely start to your May!

  2. Congrats! That must be such a relief. We moved 3 times in 3 years and it was fun. (not really)

    This is such a cute celebration. I love the crowns! So adorable.

    1. Sofia, did you have your kids during all that moving? Luckily we've only had to move with kids once so far. ~Cassidy
