The Merry Month of May and giveaway winner!

Is there another month quite like May?
The promises of Summer, the increasing sunshine, the movement of nearly any and every activity to the outdoors! It's an exciting time, and we've been enjoying it thoroughly....

Mayfaire, Kimberton Waldorf School
Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

 The Kingsessing Morris Men
...Wesley was a huge fan, and was even offered one of the dancer's handkerchiefs to dance with!

..We ended our day with a boat race, and somehow managed to find ours at the finish line!

Mayfaire, River Valley Waldorf School
Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania

..learning to balance..

 This was such a beautiful festival, full of great music, activities, and delicious food.
The weather was overcast and chilly, but all of the obvious thought put into this event left me feeling warm!
After all, what's the month of May without those sweet rain showers and ominous clouds?

 We visited The Pocket Fairy, who opened her cloak to magically reveal pockets full of trinkets for the taking!

W received felted soaps, bracelets, glass jewels, and spring butterflies....
"Butterfly!", he said, for the first time!

White Coral bells, 
upon a slender stalk...
Lilies of the Valley deck my garden walk....

Oh, don't you wish that you could hear them ring?
..that will only happen when the fairies sing!

.....I don't know of any other smell that captures the essence of Spring quite like a Lily of the Valley....
