Being consistent. It's very important in just about everything we do. Here at braceplace, I try to put items on often, and I'm finding the more I put on (songs, blogs, photography, etc), the higher the stats. I'm just in a quandry, though, about the focus. I've got too many things I'm interested in. It feels like a hodge podge. Sorry, folks, if the themes here are jumbled. Hopefully, above all, your heart is touched in some way. ...That God would be glorified. This must by my theme...To Touch Hearts.
So here is what is happening today:
1) Fafsa and taxes. Oh, we will be glad when it is finished for the year. Sadly, one must keep taxes in mind all through the year by placing the "important and significant papers" in their place. My little rule is if I can't find "it" in 10 minutes then I need to work on a better filing system for my paper. The spouse is happier too. :)
2) Horses. It's a muddy situation here at the barn. We need lots of sun to dry things out. The barn is open so the horses can come in and roll. We are also waiting for horses can go on pasture. What are those horses going to do when they get on pasture? They go nuts! Running, racing, frolicing around and around. Dry turf is best. We've learned. Putting them out after a rain causes sod devastation, and pock marks from 60 racing hooves. Yes, we want dry ground.
3) Study. Teaching of Character Traits is one on-going study. This is our last month of teaching before camp starts. There is also a CHA clinic at the Lexington Horse Park that Mary Beth is going to attend in April. It will be 5 days of riding evaluation, teaching evaluation, safety, and standards. I have a CHA link on this site if you are interested. I like reading the "Instructor" magazine articles.
4) Overnights. Another term is "Breakaways" or "weekend conferences". We usually have 80 to 100 campers spend a Friday night in the cabins. They experience games, chapel, and mealsand fun, fun, fun! Campers are coming tonight. I will go early and get the horse chores done and be ready when they arrive at 6pm. I'm in charge of music. Nate and Josh have the recreation and store.
