This was a week of birthdays. May 2 is my granddaughter Macy's birthday...just turned 20! Yikes, how does that happen? Macy is a St. Louis Cardinals fan and loves bike and auto racing. She is a sophomore in college and works at a child-care facility.
On Wednesday Carson turned 9. You have seen him on the blog many times in his baseball and football games. If you saw pictures of his dad at this age, it would be like twins.
And last but not least, my hubby had a birthday on Thursday. I can't even describe how much he means to me. He's the best!
We have been watching our very tall cactus bloom, waiting for it to open. A neighbor stopped by to let us know they have been watching it as they go around our corner.

The students in the schools here in South Central Texas will be taking the STAAR Tests this week for the government to study and to determine their skill levels (sigh). Many of the schools no longer teach cursive writing. I found this little quote (I have no idea from whom) and thought I'd share it with you.
Have a wonderful Friday and a happy weekend. I'm going to check out the movies to see if anything is on worthwhile. They are having an Indie film festival here in Fredericksburg this week, showing the talents of some folks who haven't yet made it to the big time. We have a potluck to go to tonight, and I am bringing some sort of appetizer. Hmmmm.
