I love May.  I'm always sore and exhausted by the end of the day, but yet I love May.  And it's going too fast. 
Here are a few things from our month:
Our hummingbird came this week and shows up several times a day.  Assuming it's the same one that keeps coming back.   These birds are so neat and fun to watch (and listen to)

The boys are enjoying Derrick and Carly's presence at our house.  Derrick is into RC cars, rockets, and sports so he is the boys hero right now..
Carly and the boys.

Did someone say free chicken food??  what we won't do for something free.  It might have gotten a little dusty.

We need a little less chicken food now actually, since last week we butchered 7 of our chickens.  Rod had never butchered a chicken before, but it went much easier then we thought.  the hardest part was trying to catch the chickens, since they all got out of their pen before we started.
If anyone is interested in knowing this, the grayish chicken to the right was an all white feathered silkie.  That is normal skin coloring for a white silkie- strange!  The normal looking chickens up top were dark brown feathered chickens. 
The boys played their last soccer game on Saturday.  They had a great year, Brad scored his first goal on the last game.  I was so glad, the other boys have already scored so I really wanted Brad to.  I enjoyed helping out w/ the devotions on Adam's team.  I loved his team of 8 boys who all were high energy, fun loving, happy boys who played well together.  Adam had a blast w/ them.

Adam and his long time church buddy, on defense.  Love how Adam's age group starts playing positions.   He prefers offense due to being able to score.
Ben and Brad's team, they made a new friend Brian.  All the boys had B names, their poor coach! (the tall girl was the coaches helper, not a teammate).
Finally took my mom out for Mother's day on Friday.  We have a tradition of going to El Rodeo for lunch to celebrate mother's day.  We all love the place but rarely go, so it's a special time.  We took Adam out of school when we picked up Ben and Brad from K.  Family comes before perfect attendance in this house!
We went to Friendship Community fundraiser and got to see an amazing juggler.  I mean, I've never, ever seen anyone so good before.  He's very much a professional.  He also did magic and used Brad for one of his tricks. 
That's a look into the 'extras' of our life here this month.  There's also cooking, cleaning, weeding, errands, dishes, laundry, homework...etc.  but wouldn't want to bore you with all of that :)
