May Birthday Bash

We went up to Tennessee this week to celebrate some birthdays. Quite a few fall in the same weeks so we decided to gather together for a happy birthday time.

Here are the birthday peoples getting ready for cake!




Sierra, Samuel, Karina, Kyra, Sadie

We had lots of fun.

Just hanging out and talking is always something we like to do.


In fact, when I asked Kyra if there was anything in particular that she would like to do at this party she said, "hmm, not really. I just really like being with my friends." They really are happy being together.

I think they like making faces.


Hanging... done with style, right? Or this could be titled "expressions"


We brought some canvases to paint on for each of the birthday people. Here they are being worked on.


Ren shared her gift of make-up artistry.



Just beautiful
.




We also celebrated this wonderful couple's anniversary.

Happy Anniversary Clint and Wendy!


We feel so fortunate to have such wonderful friends. It was a great time!

It looks like so much fun! Thanks for letting me enjoy it from afar.

I haven't forgotten my photo assignment. I'm just resisting my camera right now (along with just about everything else). I swear I haven't been primping for five days! :-)

How chill!!

Looks like y'all had a great time...

Nice to meet a fellow Georgia unschooler! We are in south Georgia. We moved here from Kentucky in January.

One question though? What happened to spring? It was winter, now it's like 85 degrees!
