May Events

T. graduated from high school on the 17th. Mom was here and K. was home from college, so we had an opportunity for a family photo the next day after church.
The next Saturday we played some croquet. (Summer has begun, even if not by the calendar!) Some of the cats were interested in checking out that round thing rolling across the lawn.Sunday evening, when we went to B.'s sister's to grill hamburgers and hot dogs, the sky looked like this.We about blew away when the front hit before we were done grilling! We had to finish inside with the broiler. Their neighbors (who were gone) have a dog who is afraid of storms, so she got to go inside too! She was a very well-behaved visitor.On Memorial Day, we went to a service at the church cemetery. Later in the day we helped take flags down from the military graves, which we had helped place last Wednesday. Didn't get a photo there, but it looked nice. The peonies are just barely starting to bloom, but there were iris.

We grilled again at home Monday noon.B. and M. got the corn planted this month, but there's been too much rain to get the soybeans in. It also makes it a challenge to mow some parts of the yard!
