Sapphira is enjoying the grass after a refreshing spray from the water hose. Sapphira is one of our horses that sweats profusely. There is no way I would ever ride her bareback. She's a lot of fun riding, though. She will go anywhere you ask her - even into the creek. She will jump logs and will take off into a gallop from a stand still of you know how to ask her. She is our daughter Shiloh's favorite horse.
Shiloh asked us to show more pictures of the horses because she is away in MI working at Camp Beechpoint as a lifeguard and doesn't get to ride horses much. She misses them. We will do our best to share.
We are excited about the camp week starting tomorrow. We expect about 125 4th and 5th graders. Our teens just went out the door to stay the night at camp. They must be there early in the morning so it's easier to spend the night. They like to hang out with the summer staff so it's not a burden.
Some of the summer staff joined us for lunch today. There were 13 of us around the dining room table. Yesterday they took a trail ride them came to our home to watch Second Hand Loins. The living room was full of people. It's a great feeling to make them feel at home...and that they are comfortable enough to hang out in our home. There is a curfew at our camp so they don't stay out too late, which is good, for I can't take the late nights knowing the full week of activities ahead.
