image May18_MamaAnnaMay was a very different month for us, since my load at work has literally doubled early in the month. I was so busy that it seems to me that the month just flew by. Despite this business, it was a good month. Anna is coping well with having less mama, because my husband is always there for her when I am not. These two make a fantastic team when daughter is not in “waiting until mama comes home to play with me” mood.

May27_HikingAnnaMamaSince all these work-related changes came unexpectedly, all my plans for May took the backseat. We compensated somewhat by having fun during weekends – hiking, spending time in our backyard, playing and reading together. June brings a week  away at our biggest customer event of the year, hosting a baby shower that actually became a “welcome baby” event since the baby in May27_HikingAnnaquestion had decided to come 7 weeks earlier (luckily, he is doing very well!), Anna’s preschool graduation, our wedding anniversary, my parents’ birthdays, Father’s Day… Phew, June is going to be one busy month for our family, so I’d better to plan nothing and just go with the flow. Wish me luck :)

Summer months always seem to be busy for us - so much for the lazy days of summer!

Glad to hear that baby is doing well. This is the third baby I have heard about recently coming about 7 weeks early - they are all doing well too!

I hope you have a great month!

It does sound like a very busy month! Although, I always feel more efficient and organized when I'm busy. I love your attitude, just go with the flow!

Sometimes going with the flow is the only way to go. Here's to a few minutes of peace in the middle of it all!

Good luck! I hope that everything goes well for you, and that even with all of the busyness, you can enjoy the month.
We are hosting a baby shower this weekend for one of my sisters :)

I do wish you luck Natalie! I am glad things went well at home in May while you were so busy at work.

May was our crazy month. So busy and passed fast. June will be a slower one. Summer time is full of beach trips for us, and despite the heat it is a welcome slow down from the rest of the seemingly always busy year.

Hoping June is a happy, healthy, good busy for your family!

hiking, outdoor play, reading and playing sound like pretty healthful learning activities to me!

"Go with the flow" has been my mantra for the past month. I hope that June, with all its busyness, still has some lovely surprises in store for you. Hoping that everything goes smoothly for you.

June sounds extremely busy!!!

It seems like you are doing a very good job as a family dealing with all of your new work! I do hope things will calm down for you soon, though!

Thanks for linking up! =)

I agree with Leah's comment. I love that last picture of Anna in the field, oh how Selena would love to join her there!
