Well, it's raining again. Very windy, too. Ooo! Lightning just tripped the recloser. Pow! Right now! Kelsey's tree is whipping around, looking like it's made of Silly Putty. It's quite unpleasant.
Over the weekend, before I mowed the lawn (ahem), Kelsey had her first riding lesson. Kayleigh rode Shorty, got him good and tired, then it was Kelsey's turn. She has been wanting this for a long time. Farmer Dave put smaller stirrups on and helped her up. She's a strong, wiry kid, and just zipped right up and into the saddle. Dave led her down the aisle, and she did some zig-zags and balance exercises. She seemed confident and attentive. She's looking forward to the next lesson.
P.S. Sorry about the crappy photo quality. They were taken with my phone.
