2010 Barrel Racing Spooktacular!!

The kids and I had a great time dressing up in our costumes for a costume contest!! It was neat seeing the adults and kids let loose and have fun!! The first two pics are of Clayton and Kaya doing PeeWee barrels! The enjoyed that too!!

Kindergarten goes to the pumpkin patch

Kaya and the entire kindergarten went to Carrol's Pumpkin Patch in Grinnel for a field trip. We spent the whole day there. Kaya got to ride the bus while a van full of us mom's followed! What a great trip!! In this first pic it is of Mrs. Rowe's class!!

Center Grove Apple Orchard

We love going to the orchard! This fall has been just perfect for outdoor activities!! Our season passes have been well worth the money! We love meeting Denise Fick and her girls there!! More pics to come!!

Willie WON the 3d saddle!!!

I started out the barrel racing season with a lame horse, Iris, and had to put her down due to a horrible injury. Then, I bought a new horse, Willie, a horse that I have had my eye on for at least 2 years!! I must have known long ago what a cool horse he was!! Him and I had a great season together, starting 1/2 way through!! He took me to the top of the 3d in the D4 NBHA district! He will win his first saddle!! I am so blessed to have Willie in my life!! What a great horse he is!! A heart the size of Texas!! He takes great care of me!!
