Sweet Kate headed off to first grade this morning. She was brave, but Mom -- not so much. I cried all the way home. So hard to see her growing up, but how thankful we are that she is becoming a kind and thoughtful young lady. And, we're even more thankful that, just last week, Kate decided to follow Jesus. We are blessed beyond measure!

We borrowed a boat from some dear friends and spent time on Lake Austin this weekend. What a great way to celebrate my 35th birthday!
Friday night - an evening boatride to Hula Hut with good friends.
On Saturday, we and the Conlys took our families out for a full day on the water. The kids had a blast taking in the sights and swimming.
We returned home, waterlogged and tired...but not too tired for birthday cake! As Josh says, his girls always have room for dessert.

Kate turned 6 on May 3rd, and at her request we hosted a Garden Fairy Tea Party for her fairy and elf friends! It was a gorgeous spring day for taking tea outdoors!
|The kids went on a treasure hunt to locate items to take home and create their own fairy houses like this one.|
|Aunt Sherrill and Uncle Casey did face painting.|
|Grandpa made bow and arrow sets for our handsome elves.|
|I made flower wreaths for all the fairies.|
So thankful to family and friends for helping make Kate's birthday so special!
