May Day

C and J before school.

I know I posted this as a sneak peek, but we had SO much fun making these tissue paper flowers.  There is very little that Martha can't handle :)  You can go here for a tutorial.
I think they turned out quite well, if I do say so myself. ;)

C and a bunch of faceless first graders doing the "Sasha"

J getting ready to start the Maypole dance

Maypole dance in action!  They sure went fast....

Completed Maypole!  Woohoo 3rd grade!  Excellent job :)

Phew, I'm EXHAUSTED and I only have 3 more events to get through in the next week (+ 2 days)

I totally forgot to take pictures of the food tables.  sigh.  They looked great though, pinky swear!  We made tiny maypoles for the cakes out of dowels and ribbon.  Super cute.  J and C both did awesome.  May Day was followed by a great lunch at the club.  Overlooking the harbor on a sunny day.  Perfection.

Hello blog world!  I have a crazy busy couple of weeks ahead, but do want to get some posts up soon.  May Day is this Friday at school and I am one of the two moms in charge! The third grade dances the Maypole dance, and it is such a rite of passage at school.  J is in 3rd grade this year, so a very special May Day is in store.  I will have a post with pictures etc. soon!  Pinky swear!
