(End of) May Day

This Friday marked our May Day celebration here with the Playgarden children...
Yes, we're a bit late, considering May is nearly over, but we were still excited and ready for this merry day in May!!

Each family brought flowers from home to weave into our braided raffia crowns...
We also strung bells onto pieces of yarn to create simple bracelets and necklaces.

The girls were so excited to wear their most favorite dresses for the occasion:)

Ok, yes that is me wielding a sledgehammer as the children look on in anticipation:)

We carried our Maypole, sledgehammer, and a large wooden stake down to the park together...
What a sight!

What a wonderful day. 
We kept it simple; not too many guests, not too many changes to our usual day together,
but it still ends in a few meltdowns and a very long nap.
So it goes!
Tomorrow is Whitsunday (Pentecost) and I have many preparations to finish for church tomorrow.
Details later:)
