May is always such a busy month of the year filled with a lot of end of the year activities. Tori had her share of fun events. First, her preschool put on an adorable Mother's day program. They sang some really cute songs, and made some priceless gifts for the moms. They each took a turn telling everyone what they loved to do with their mom the most. When it was Tori's turn she said that she loves planting flowers with me. We have only done that once, but she must have loved it! The next week I went and bought some flowers for us to plant =) Here are a few cute pictures from that program.

Another field day has come and gone. This year Alexis's class named themselves "The Fearless Tigers". They had bright orange shirts and tiger print bandannas. It was so much fun to go and see Alexis interact with her classmates and see her having such a fun time. The theme for field day, was "Survivor" just like last year. They had some fun unique events. The first one was in a little kiddie pool. They had to pick up as many marbles with their feet as they could. I love this picture of Alexis. She had so much fun. You can see it on her face =)

Food storage has been something that is always on my mind and quite honestly it haunts me! It is so overwhelming to think about how much food I need to buy in order to have adequate storage.It seems like when it comes time to buy groceries, I always seem to just have the money to buy the food we need to eat now, not to put towards our food storage. I have been pretty good about stocking up on water, but that's about it! I was reading my friend, Celeste's blog about her similar thoughts to mine on food storage, and it totally inspired me. So I made my menu for a 3 month supply of food. I chose 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches and 7 dinners and multiplied it by 12. I then wrote down all of the items we need for each meal. Then I put little boxes next to each item that I can check off once I purchase it. (I love checking things off lists!) I am happy to report that last night when I did my grocery shopping I was able to buy a 3 month supply of spaghetti sauce and spaghetti noddles.
I was so excited to cross those items off of my list. I have also decided to label each item I get with stickers that show the dates that I bought things, so I can rotate properly. I feel such a sense of accomplishment! I know that we have a long ways to go to have our complete 3 months supply, but I know that if I buy things little by little we will get there! I was so grateful for Celeste's post on this, so hopefully someone can be inspired by mine as well. =)
