The Final May Day

For the past ten years, we've been celebrating May Day at the girls' elementary school with an event that is steeped in tradition. It's sweet and beautiful and it makes you feel good to be part of a community that puts so much love into this annual gala. 

This year Shelly was selected from her class as the princess. And, in addition, the 5th graders performed the May pole dance. It's such a sweet performance and the kids seem to enjoy it as much as the adults.

It's a bit melancholy to think of the end of yet another elementary school tradition as we complete our time at this sweet school.
