About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

"Poka Dot"

This afternoon, after Jeremy was done with work, we all went over to the ranch to give "poka dot" some much needed exercise. Weldon threw a horrible fit when it was time to give someone else a turn... perhaps we need three horses!Haydn insisted that she learn how to do it all by herself. So I taught her the basics and shut all the gates so there was nowhere for that ancient horse to go. I must say, Haydn is a natural. She would have stayed up there all night if I let her.
Getting Emma to smile on camera is almost impossible. Kelli can attest to that! But somehow, riding just brings out the best in all my children! Haydn was such a big girl by holding Emmaline on and even tried to teach her how to hold on with her legs! It was a wonderful afternoon!
