Reptile show

Yes these are from a while ago, that is Amiya in the picture but I haven't put them on here yet. We went to a reptile show and look what I volunteered for!
In my glory!
There were a ton of animals but this big guy was the hit.

Elsie Rae on the left, a helper, Amiya, Josie and Georgia.

When we got home Emmy ran around on a mission and then started yelling "Come to my reptile show, come to my reptile show". The group that put the show on had about 20 plastic and glass containers on a couple of tables so that is where the plastic container comes in. Then belts and cords and shoe laces make perfect snakes! She put on a great show even though one kept biting me and one kept getting out!! :)

Josie's soccer

Josie played soccer this summer again. Boy is she an aggressive player. She is fun to watch.
She always surprises me because she is so soft spoken ...

...but when she plays she gives it her all.

Here are the girls with the sign we made to welcome Amiya our fresh air child from Staten Island.
Here she is just off the bus. She was on that thing ALL day. Poor girl.
When we got home we put the animals to bed. She was very excited about the horses and wants to ride one. That will be a special day!
She volunteered to water them. I can't believe how polite this girl is. It is going to make the stay sooooooo easy. She is very inquisitive and is so bright eyed about the whole situation. I'm so excited about the unfolding of this experience!

We have been enjoying the horses this year.
This weekend we had the neighbors over to get a lesson and they were floating on air.
My Jazz is 15 this year! She is such a nice girl.
Pony is becoming a dream. I have tried to make my time with him quality training time and it seems to have worked. He is gently and allows you to finally brush him all over. He is taking the saddle and pad with little fuss and I can trim his feet with no problem. His main and tail are finally growing back and he is becoming quite the handsome little guy. Finally I feel confident that he is not going to act up around the girls and I allow Georgia and Josie handle him on their own. Don't worry they are horse smart kids!
