Some of May

Mothers' Day with my girls
 On a Sunday afternoon walk.  These lilacs were so beautiful!
 I got Jeffrey and Lesa's quilt bound after it was quilted.
 I made this pillow out of scraps left from making the quilt.
 I thought it was so neat how Connie quilted "from Mother" in one of the borders!
 Emily graduated from high school in the Colorado Heritage Education School System (our homeschool umbrella organization) on May 13.  Her graduation completed 26 years of homeschooling for our family!

After the tassel was turned.
 Tim, Brenda, Charissa, and Felix surprised Emily by coming out for her graduation!!
 During the night, Randy's family also arrived and were here for Emily's graduation party.  Before breakfast, this was the scene in the living room!
This was the first time for the cousins to meet Felix!  They all loved him!
Randy helped Emily inflate the balloons with helium for the party.
Jewelyn liked the helium balloons!
 Felix had his first ever sink bath at Grandma's! 
 Jewelyn loved Felix!
 The girl cousins, Charissa and Jewelyn
 50 some people came to Emily's party and everybody had to pose with Emily for pictures.
 Emily and her sweet friend, Natalie
 We were so happy Katie and Uncle Alvin got to come!  Everybody was supposed to write something to Emily on a couple scrapbook pages.  All the "big" people took home one of Emily's photo cards and all the "little" people took home a helium balloon as thank-you for coming to the party.
 Dr. Matt, Hope, and Lincoln with Emily
 Emily with Aunt Esther, and her cousins: Sarah, Kwani, and Hadassah.  Sarah graduated with Emily.
 Emily with the Mike Durkee family
 Emily opening gifts
 Felix enjoying a balloon!
We are thankful for Emily graduating and for all of the people who showed their love by coming to her graduation and her party.  Space does not allow the pictures of everybody who came.  Emily is blessed by many loving friends in her life.
