Goodness Me

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve updated this blog and I am really sorry. I’ve been studying and working like a mad woman. But, particularly for Mom and Dad’s sake, I’ll be keeping this more current from now on. I can’t say that I’ve been crafting as much as I’d like to. And haven’t even finished the needlework project I started 2 years ago! But I have managed to earn an Advanced Certificate in Early Years Education and am now and Early Years Professional. What am I currently reading? Well, I finally watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo last weekend and have been hooked by the whole storyline. So I immediately went to the library and checked out The Girl Who Played With Fire. I love it already. I’ve also been listening to Ani DiFranco and the Fleet Foxes. I really love Mykonos.
The kids have shot up like weeds. You’d never recognise them. Alex wears my shoes and she’s only 10. Jackson is the tallest in his class but still sleeps with Grover. And little Betty. Well, she’s tallest in her class, too. But also the widest, I’m afraid. She’s confident and opinionated. I love it.

Splash

More about Alex. She decided to try riding her Aunty Caz’s horse, Splash. It turns out she’s a natural. That was six weeks ago. Yesterday she rode Sonny, walking him around the arena all by herself. She helped to muck out Orange, another pony in the stables. She was able to call Orange by name and I watched him go to her like a dog would to its owner. I was amazed. Finally she mounted Splash. She walked him around the arena and then was allowed to trot, which is when my phone ran out of memory. Anyway, I watched her trot Splash around, taking him from corner to corner, stopping and walking and trotting again. Then (Did I mention she’s having weekly lessons?), her teacher, Sophie, placed a reign on Splash. She stood in the center of the circle and let Alex trot in a circle. Then came the good part. Alex kicked Splash’s side and he started to canter. It was amazing watching Alex in full control. She cantered for a good while before being let loose to walk Splash half-way around the arena only to turn and canter OVER A JUMP! Good gravy I about cried I was so proud of her!!

Anyway, there’s more to come of life this side of the pond shortly.
Take care for now!!
