Horses: As planned, we attended our last horse show of the season yesterday and as hoped, it was a great success. Equestrian Girl would have had a clean sweep in her age group for Showmanship and her 4 riding classes but...a metal table sucked the magnets off the number on her shirt and none of us noticed until it was too late. The judge couldn't place her in her Western Pleasure class because she wasn't wearing a number. And the 4th place ribbon was in Open Bareback equitation so she was competing against adults - but the real problem was she was losing her boots and had to reach down to pull them back on a few times!

Motocross: The boys got a nice surprise on Saturday when a friend invited them out to their home track and found it to be awesome!! They were really impressed and had a great afternoon of practice. They were on their best behavior and hope to be invited back soon.

Homeschooling: I have a sneaky suspicion this is going to be a tough week of schooling. I have some fun stuff planned - like history channel videos on Thanks giving...but we'll see how it goes.

What a pretty ribbon class! It looks like she did well and ended her season on a great note! And is also sounds like you need to buy her some boots that fit next year :P Although knowing how kids grow you might want to hold off on buying anything until right before the season starts up again.
