Firsts and a finish

First day of school for the gmen, their junior year.  Can you tell how excited they are?
 
First day of school for Nathan, he's in 2nd grade.  What a difference from his brothers!
 
First varsity game of the year, both boys played well and the team won!

First flag football practice for Nathan, not quite ready for tackle yet.

First pack meeting as a Wolf, checking out his belt loop achievements he earned over the summer.
 
First game, he played offense.
 
Even in the rain, he did well and his team won!

Love this picture of the gmen together!

I worked on this while driving to the lake.  I decided watching Doctor Who was more entertaining than listen to what DH had on the radio.

Finished - May!  The rest of the months will be put on hold since I'm trying to work on Halloween and Christmas. 

And I still have to finish Karen's fairy.  Is it just me, or does anyone else get so close to finishing a piece and then have to take a break?  All I have left is the beading and outlining.  I'm wondering if it's because I know once I'm done I know she'll be gone?!

My, how the boys are growing.
I love those little bluebirds in their nest up top on the May piece.

The boys look overjoyed to be back at school! Your little man still has the enthusiasm though.
May is lovely, I really like Lily of the Valley.
