Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

There is a Christmas morning style excitement around our house lately....
 The best Grandparents in the whole world just closed on their farm house....
 Said farmhouse is about 6 miles away from our house....and I have a feeling we will be crashing it...OFTEN.
 Kobi has been soaking up every second of her horse lessons and I have seen her blossom right before my very eyes.  My once shy, skeptic....has found her niche, he confidence, her is a beautiful thing.  
 For starting out, we will be leasing some horses from a wonderful summer camp program for a few months, while the camp is out of session.
 So the crazy countdown has begun..." Mommy, how many more days until we get the horses?"  About 77 times a day.  I will admit to being just as excited :)  We have 4 more weeks though, sigh.  Halloween has nothing on horses.  We are set to get them day of or day after, so I doubt pilfering for candy will happen this year.  Shame, I so loathe  look forward to that holiday. Not the costume part, the greedy candy snatching part.... mostly because I have no will power and always end up stealing all the good stuff outta their treat bags the second they are out the door for school.

 Finding her balance, and scaring the whits outta her mama :) No worries though, a very capable horse with a more than capable trainer close by.

Your children are very fortunate - in so many ways.

The standing on horseback would, unfortunately, be forbidden to mine. That's just how I roll.

Lucky kids to have grandparents close by, though!
