The month of May has always been busy for our family and this year May was no exception,  you could even say it was a month on steroids:)

Chris came home from Penn State and we drove to Durham, NC to get Casey home from Duke University, 1050 miles round trip.  Spent a day packing her up too.

Once home I headed to Cincinnati to work with my IdeaConnect Partners then picked up Karim, friend of Chris, on my way to the family cottage in Michigan the next weekend, 600 miles total.

The rest of the family headed to Michigan to our family cottage to install the docks, 700 miles round trip.  We stopped to eat in Greektown at the dusty grape, oops, I mean the Golden Fleece (their Gyro meat is made in-house and to die for, really), and then Chris and I took Karim back to Ohio to his internship and then home 400 miles.

While home we – painted a room, picnicked, went boating, found property to buy along the river, waterski’d, wakeboarded, sailed the hobie, kids went to cedar point, attended academic awards dinner for Jen, celebrated 2 birthdays, had two different friends of Chris visit for a weekend (diff weekends), sent Chris to New York for his internship and sent Casey to China for her summer studying Chinese (ok that was early June, but really,  all that prep was in May – shots, shopping, packing, etc).  at least 1000 miles, probably more.

almost 4000 miles, super amounts of FUN, a future life change (now we want to be living on the river), and now an empty house again — well, Jen is home and now with a driving permit — but that is part of June’s story:)

I love MAY!

About Linda D

The kids are grown. I am creating and living the life I love. I do miss our family dinnertime conversations, especially Honest Wednesdays, or Reality Sundays, somethin' like that, always a laugh or a cry or look into each individuals perspective and life experiences. To me, that is what FAMILY is about, sharing the joy of being connected to each other! So even when the kids live away from home, one is 630 miles away, I strive to keep connected, with love!
