Happy May 1st!

Well, now!  It's May and I couldn't be happier.  This month ...

-Joel comes home from his first year at Carolina.  He's had a good year as a Tarheel and I'm very happy that he'll be home this summer.  Who knows how many more summers we'll have a child at home???  I'll enjoy every minute.

-Our Make Welcome women will gather for class three times! I am so very proud of these women and excited for all that they've learned.  Four women own their own sewing machines now.  I hope to spend time this summer in their homes, helping them individually and encouraging them in their sewing endeavors.

and ...

Matthew and Kailie get married!!!

My #5 child is getting married.  I can hardly believe this, but I am thrilled, to put it mildly.  I have said from the time that Matthew was agonizing over declaring his affections to Kailie, that if they ended up getting married, their story would make a good romantic comedy someday.  You can read it here, if you're interested.

We head to Colorado in a few short weeks for the wedding and are eagerly anticipating the time with Kailie's family.  I'll be cooking a Southern supper for the rehearsal dinner.  The menu is almost finalized and the food sourced.  All of our children and grandchildren will be there.  All the boys are groomsmen and Clara is the flower girl.  It's going to be a big, fun, Christ-centered celebration on a historic ranch property with dancing in a barn!  I can't wait.

PS   Matthew and I decided on the song for our Mother/Son dance today.  Not telling.  Sorry.
