May 2019 Little Things

May was another fun and exciting month for our family. We not only celebrated Jessica's big milestone 21st birthday, but Sarah and I went on a local trip, Grant and I had an overseas trip, and we did lots of 'little things' during that month too. (Lunch with friends, school meetings, an evening out at a comedy show with my sister, Mother's Day, some self-care, parent-teacher conferences and dinner with friends.)

I spent time watching Luke play soccer at school and admiring the amazing buildings on his campus. Autumn afternoons are so very pretty.

And Autumn mornings aren't too bad either:

We went out for dinner at our favourite Italian restaurant one night back in May:

I went to watch Sarah play a water polo game down in Tauranga one weekend. Sadly the team didn't win that tough game after our drive down there, but Sarah played her heart out and managed to score, defend and assist very nicely that day. I'm so proud of that girl.

And we celebrated Jessica's 21st birthday at the end of the month. Read all about that over HERE.

Luke had his annual, school "Big House Music" competition at Spark Arena at the end of the month too. Each school house performs a song and dance routine on the night, competing against each other for a coveted cup. It's an incredibly fun evening, displaying the wonderful house spirit that the boys and girls have at this school. Some of the performances were truly amazing. This was the only photo that I got, sadly!

And we had dinner out with two of our friends from Melbourne who came out to Auckland for work and for my birthday party:

And that was our May. x
