Monday Moanin' (anyone remember Bob Talbert?)

Horses: I would love to give credit to the person who created the image above - I think its beautiful and extremely clever! Equestrian Girl got it from a friend on to use in a banner. There are others that I'll feature between now and Halloween but this one is by far my favorite.

We went to work on Stanley tonight to get him clipped up for the show. Although I started blanketing in early September he is already a hairy beast and there wasn't all that much we could do. No doubt others will be just as bad. We also got all his grain bags ready along with the shavings. Tomorrow Equestrian Girl will load more into the trailer so we have little to do on Thursday other than load up the horse and GO! We can check in at noon on Thursday and I plan on being there not long after that so I can hopefully get a pull through camping spot close to the barn. Crossing fingers.

Motocross: Since there are only 3 class at the show on Saturday and one is showmanship, the boys are heading up to Freelin to get in another race day just in case the weather is bad for the Monster Mash at Baja. It does free up the trailer for us girls so we aren't so crowded but we'll miss our men on Saturday! (Motocross Boy says he's now officially a man because he got Old Spice deodorant. Actually RAN to take a shower today so he could use it.)

Homeschooling: Scott is taking more time to sit with Motocross Boy while he does his school work. Most of the time it just means sitting in the same room with him. Today they both laid on the bed with laptops but got it all done! Equestrian Girl got most of the week's work done today except for Language Arts which she apparently "forgot" but will do tomorrow. At least nobody is struggling or complaining - all good!

Great picture. Packing ahead of time is always a plus. That's the way we used to do it too. Good luck at the show.
