Here's a branch of snowy May

Here's a branch of snowy May,
a branch the fairies gave me.
Would you like to dance today,
with a branch the fairies gave me?
Dance away, dance away,
holding high the branch of May.
Dance away, dance away,
holding high the branch of May.

Our school held it's annual May Faire celebration on Saturday and we spent the entire day there. It was a day filled with may pole dancing, some goat love, activities and games, a circus put on by some of our students, yummy food, and so much more! A joyous time for sure with endless giggles and fun. I do have to admit we were exhausted by the end of it. (Kevin and I weren't exactly thinking clearly when we signed up for our volunteer shifts at our class' fishing booth - I worked the opening shift and he worked the closing.)

Baby L enjoyed trying to dig dragon tears out of cement with his fingers. But wait - what's that over there? Could it be?! Is it really...

Our basket of fish

The view from inside the fishing hole

We finished our fish just in time for the booth, but I do wish we were able to make more. Our class almost made our goal with a total of 150 fish in the end. Would you believe that still wasn't enough though? Our booth was such a hit that we ran out of fish about half way through May Faire. Volunteers ended up frantically cutting out fish and sewing bead eyes on to them at the same time the children were fishing for them. Pretty crazy!
It's quite possible that I had too much fun inside the fishing hole attaching the fish to the fishing poles with a friend. I declared that next year we needed to have a felt shark fin on a stick to swim around the hole. Think they'll do that, even if it's just for my own amusement?

P.s - I was happy to find another use for their Santa Lucia dresses. It's still chilly enough here that flannel is appropriate.
