Evan and Ann-Marie were able to take guitar lessons this semester through PACyber. We borrowed guitars from a friend - thanks to the Richards family. Evan really enjoyed it so I think we will be pursuing further lessons and his own guitar in the future. Ann-Marie just liked to sing - she didn't really care for the guitar. David Granati, of the Granati brothers, taught the class. He is well-known in this area.....I don't think in Iowa, however, as I had never heard of him. He definitely made the class fun and exciting for the kids!

The class put on a performance for the parents and it was fun to watch. Great job!

Halfway through May, and what have we been up to?

Tolerating a very dreary and rainy month.

Finishing strong - school will be done on June 3rd.

Activities ending and final performances.

Gymnastics and Soccer.

So much going on, yet not a lot to talk about. So we continue to live each day, trying to keep dry, trying to keep a positive attitude amidst the dreariness, and looking forward to the ending of Spring and the beginning of Summer.

How is your May going?
