This is more of a journal entry than a blog post. It’s nice to have a spot to write down the little things that happen in our everyday lives so that we are able to look back on it later on.
It was a busy weekend for us, and a hot one. The small squeaky kid was entered to ride in 4 classes in the fair, but in the end we stayed only for two. It was just too hot. The ponies and riders were done and worn out early. My little 3 year old neice rode her pony, but I showed up too late. She placed first in her class, got lots of ahhhhs, and I missed it! Next time. Squeaky took home two ribbons too and was quite happy with herself. It was the neice’s first show and squeaky’s second, so a good job was done by all. And did I mention how hot it was?
We went home, some friends of the girls came over for a sleepover and we spent most of the time hiding from the heat, though there was a visit to the lake for some swimming after dinner that night.
I had plans to accomplish much more this weekend, but it was just too unpleasant outside. The humidity is awful. Even the dog prefers the basement, where it’s cool.
I hope it rains soon. Our garden needs it and the heat needs to break, a little.
