May has been a busy month. It usually is a busy month for us here at the Lamps home, but this year, it has been even busier. It is the month of birthdays for us. Megan, Emilee and Hunter all have a birthday the last week of May. Why you say did I do that. Well, I just meant to go for the summer because I taught but Emilee and Hunter decided on their own to come into the world earlier then expected. It is a little like Christmas for us here in May. We also had a few other events that happened as well which kept the month very occupied with many many things to do. Because the kids birthdays are at the end of May, birthday parties tend to be earlier because have you ever tried to plan a birthday party around Memorial Day? It is never very successful. Also, they don't all get a party every year. Megan and Hunter get one on their even age and Emilee gets one on her odd age. This was a year for Megan and Hunter so first up is Megan.
I felt that the kids not only did great with their instant challenge, but they did a wonderful job on their main challenge. They were one of the youngest groups there and considering this was their first year in Destination Imagination, they have done quite well. Will I do this next year you might ask? I really don't know. If someone else would like to take charge I am all for that and I would help all the time, but if Emilee wants to continue this next year and they need someone to make her team, then of course I would do it for her.
Earlier she wanted to go to Steak and Shake for dinner and get a large milk shake all to her self, but she decided that she would like to have mom's lasagna instead. I think that ended up being a better day.
Personally, I like it when the kids don't have birthday parties. I like doing the stuff with them that make the day just a little bit special. It was a great day!
That brings us to now. May is done and birthdays and special events are over. School is out and Summer begins. Can I relax now? Probably not!
