Spring Break

We have had a wonderful spring break. Especially since my kids have been at my parents since last Thursday night. I actually stayed there until Monday, since I had to work on Tuesday and Thursday.

While there, my girls are having a great time. Bookworm has been riding horses anytime she can nag an adult (Grandpa) into putting the bridle and bare back gear on the horse. My dad no longer has a kid saddle, and the grown up saddles set her so far back she has difficulty reining effectively. So, we just threw on some blankets and a cinch to hold them in place for her comfort. She loved it. Sunday she asked me when I was putting away the tack "Mommy, do some kids ever kiss their horses?" It made me tear up, because I totally understand that love for your horse. I was there too, and still would be if I had a horse of my own.

Mom told me a funny on Popcorn. Popcorn was telling her about getting her eyes checked. She hated having them dilated. "Grandma, I looked so stupid. My eyes made me look like a dog in a human costume!"

Well, that's all the news I have time to share with you today. I have to go meet my mom to get my kiddos. They wanted to stay until Sunday, but I told them they needed at least a few days at home before returning to the grind!

Oh yeah, we bought the bead board for our back splash, and I picked out the paint. I'll probably pick it up today, so we will start on that this weekend. Be on the lookout for pictures!

Awww... i used to kiss my horse... I loved her so much. I rode bareback often as well because in the summer we would take the horses swimming. Good times. :-)
