May has been a busy month (I know I've said that before) and it is coming to an end with all the birthdays, end of school activities and sporting events now behind us. Everyone in my family with May birthdays is now a year older, all the school age children are on to a new grade, the sporting events have been won or lost and the memories are all good.
My two 5 year old granddaughters, Anna and EJ are through preschool and ready to be kindergarteners. These changes that seem to come so fast bring back lots of memories of when they were little.

It seems like only yesterday.......
Hope will be going from 5th grade to middle school. This "friendly sisters" pic from Hope's graduation is not the norm for these two who both like to dabble in the art of sibling rivalry. The look on EJ's face looks like she is thinking. "Ok, Hope is being really nice to me right now, but let's take this picture really quick and let me move on before that changes."
I'm sure the day will come when they are best friends again like they were when this picture was taken about 5 years ago.
Jared will be going from 6th grade to middle school. He finished 6th grade with straight As through the whole year. Yes, that makes me very proud.

Jared and Gabe have known each other since before they were born when their mom's met at a birthing class.
As I say goodbye to May I will be saying Aloha to Hawaii where I will be going tomorrow for my cousin's daughter's wedding. I am looking forward to some fun in the sun, at least I will be if I ever finish packing. I'd better go and get working on that.
