I am working on the feather tutorial for those of you that have inquired. That is coming soon.
This spring is shaping up to be one of our busiest yet. I have yet to plant my window boxes and hanging baskets but I did manage to pick up a 1/2 dozen heirloom tomato plants last weekend along with some beautiful herbs. My own startings are coming along but not quite ready for the garden.
What's kept us so busy. Graphic design projects have kept me working day and night—literally. Our son is in soccer and my oldest is taking riding lessons. Combine all that with the day-to-day and it makes for a very stressed mama! Going out to the horse farm makes me forget everything and it's very nice to decompress and watch my oldest ride.
So now we get to spend more time out at this beautiful farm. I'm beyond grateful!!! All of my kids love it and it affords them a little piece of what I had growing up. Lots and lots of gorgeous, open land. It feels like home!
Trees and dirt is what my favorite boy heads for when we're at the farm. Here he is with a big grin, just as happy as ever doing the stuff that boys do.
We had to decide whether or not we were going to get more serious about riding or find another sport for our oldest. More riding time was a must if she was going to show. Leasing Aiden will give her more hours in saddle, which will build confidence. There is also the benefit of added muscle conditioning to do consecutive, and higher jumps and the added bonus of bonding with one horse rather than riding someone different each time.
Now to buy show gear. Yikes! We will be looking for consignment for sure!
Thanks for visiting!
