Lelly's SP challenge for the month of May-
"going back into the vault this month, to an spt challenge i really loved! hope you will join along!!

tuesday, may 5 something old
tuesday, may 12 something new
tuesday, may 19 something borrowed
tuesday, may 26 something blue

take it literally, take it figuratively, but by all means, make a commitment to complete all four challenges for the month of may! "

I live very close to all of my immediate family. But for many different known, and unknown reasons I hardly ever see them.
My youngest sister and I set a date on the calendar for her to come over for lunch. As we sat down it was so quiet. Tucker was down for a nap. The older two at school and Luke was unexpectedly gone to a friends house. Janelle looked at me and said, "I think this is the first time in 9 years that we have been alone."
I think she was right!
A new experience.
We sat and ate lunch without really knowing what to say. We are so used to being interrupted.
We have another date set on the calendar. I am looking forward to it. I think I need to do this with my mom, and my other siblings.
Check out what others captured new.

That sounds like a delightful way to spend the afternoon.

And if you want to do it with your new friend Kristie, that would be ok, too. Of course, rumor has it she likes your kids to join in as well ... so either way is great! :)
