The Rest of May

In the middle of May, we went to the First Holy Communion of Dan's niece.  During the Mass, the tornado sirens went off twice, so it was quite exciting and memorable.  Thank goodness, no actual tornado! 

Isabella, Olivia, Anne, and Catherine.

The kids were all happy to see Grandma.

Catherine has been working on Science, even after we were all done with the rest of school.  It is nice because she can focus on it more.

One evening an airplane began to swoop down low over our property and then fly just over the trees to the north, then make a big loop around and come again, each time moving a bit more west.  It was a cropduster working on a field across the road to the north of us.  The kids loved watching the airplane and it was like having our own private air show!  Here's a short video of one of the passes the pilot made over our house:

 One day, all of a sudden, I realized I wasn't sure where Anthony was.  After a search, this is where we found him:
Time for a snooze.

At the end of May, I took a few pictures of a storm that was rapidly approaching.
