present participle | may 2015

I'm jumping on the monthly "present participle list" bandwagon this year, partly because I'm excited that there are people who can identify present participles and partly because I'm hoping it will end this blogging break I seem to have permanently taken. 

This is what we've been up to in May 2015...only one present participle needed:

SURVIVING our crazy month of May, by the numbers:

Six performances of Aladdin Jr. the kiddo's debut performance in a musical. (I am so damn proud of that girl.)
One mother visiting. 
Four nights in Paris. 
One pea festival.
Two old friends visiting from Rhode Island.
One huge project deadline met.
One first talent show completed. 
Two extra kiddos for a week.
One fantastic piano recital. (Three-and-a-half years of lessons is looking good!)
Countless hours of flat picking guitar practice.
Two even older friends visiting from Florida.
One dozen oysters.
One missed book club night. (The Round House by Louise Erdrich. Loved it.)
One new car battery.
One cherry festival.
Eight tomato plants thriving.
One cruise on the Seine River, one cruise on Lake Garda.
Two wineries, one day.
One surprise visit from a father.
One week-long birthday celebration for the kiddo. 
Four dozen cupcakes, plus five dozen more.
Ten loads of laundry waiting.
281,197 steps.

Twelve more days until summer break.

Too many bottles of wine...how else do you expect we could make it through?!

  1. Holy Cow! You were really busy! Sounds like a ton of fun though. I just watched a house hunters international last night featuring a family who lived in your area. Though I don't think same town. Such a gorgeous area! 12 more days! Hang in there!
