Wait, that's "me oh my"...sorry! I'm just all a twitter (no, I don't tweet, sorry) about our beautiful, warm and sunny May! The trees are bursting out in bloom and smell heavenly...ahhhh...
Hello little redbud!
The Creepy Woods is just getting green but in a few weeks it will be totally leafed out. It will look nothing like this:
Except for Eddy! The May apples are growing quickly. May apples are the green things in this pic..they will bloom and have little green apples things under the leaves. I heard they are edible, but not really sure. I guess I should look it up and find out!
The trees in the backyard are getting greener too, but I love the purple flowers in the lawn just sprinkled everywhere. I know they are really weeds, but I like them anyway!
Prom was last weekend at my Granddaughter's High School. Driana and Summer looked very lovely. Their Dad, Jack, looks lovely too...and very proud. Driana is on the left, Summer on the right. Driana graduates in a few weeks...another right of May passage around here!
Last night we had a Court of Honor for our Boy Scout Troop. It's always fun to see the boys get awards that they've worked so hard to achieve. Jack had the privilege of giving Kyle a thank you gift for serving for so long as the Scout Master. He was recently released from that calling and we were really grateful for his service. He's going to hang around and serve on the Troop committee because he really loves working with these great kids.
Thanks Kyle! You can still be part of the "group" with Jack and Derek!
Boy Scouts has taken some bad raps this year and many changes are coming. I'm not going to get into a "right" or "wrong" debate here....Scouting is a wonderful organization for young men. I'm always moved by the dedication of youth and leaders to work together to achieve goals and set standards that will serve them well all their lives. Being an Eagle Scout is an honor that you can brag about your whole life. A few years ago we had an elderly gentleman (80yrs. old) coming into the operating room and the first thing the nurse said was, "He's an Eagle Scout!"...yep, bragging rights from teen to 100yrs...or more! Happy month of May!
