Busy Month of May

The busy month of May is upon us.  There's only a few weeks of school left, so there's lots to do.  The kids have something almost every night of the week from now until school. 

Last night, Wednesday, was one of our only free nights.  I was done for the day and Veronica was planning to work on this big project that is due Friday.  We had nothing to do, no where to go!  Or so I thought.  At 4:21 my phone rings and it's our principal.  He was calling to inform me that somehow lines of communication got crossed and the choir teacher hadn't told us and he hadn't told us but Veronica was getting an award from Lafourche Parish for being selected for All State Honor Choir.  Tonight.  At 6pm. 

So there went our free night.  I was more than a tad bit annoyed, because this wasn't the first time.  Last year we totally missed an award ceremony for perfect LEAP test scores because no one told us about it....   

I hurried up and got dressed, as did Veronica.  Clint was already on his way out the door for another meeting, so he had to miss it. 





Veronica's school and choir awards were given out first.  She was the third person called.  We stuck around for a little while, then we decided to sneak out.  After all, she was in the middle of all this homework.  And no one had told us about this award ceremony, so we weren't prepared to be out for hours.  We weren't the only ones leaving, so I didn't feel so bad. 

This is how May looks:

Veronica now has dancing Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.
After school choir practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Tonight we have a band meeting at the high school for incoming freshmen.
"Rookie camp" for Valerie - basically prep for summer band camp is at the end of the month.
Dancing rehearsal and recital.
Band concert.
Choir concert and awards.
Awards day at school.

And whatever else pops up during the month.

Hoping for some downtime on the weekends!!
