A full Saturday

After a 6:30 am wake up so we could get to the barn by 7:15... we had a fun morning at the horse show (have I told you I'm not a morning- ask Bri she may have noticed when she came by to watch- the show not me). At least it was warm and we did a pretty good job on our first attempt at horse braids in 20 min. Erin ended up doing 5 classes (you sign up for different categories depending on what you can or want to do with your horse, then they ask you to do certain things and you're judged on your ability, position, the horse's listening capacity etc.) and placed 6th in one of them, so she was happy since she's only ridden this particular horse twice and most of the time he looks half asleep.

We had a surprise visit from Mom and Del, I know yes they live in Alberta and don't usually just pop in, but that's what happened- they were on their way home from holidays on the Oregon coast and decided to come our way. The day held 2 more soccer games and ordering in pizza for dinner since I was bagged. We skipped church. I think God would be OK with that :) He's not so stuck on how often we visit Him at the building, but more often how often our hearts turn His way. I was worshiping Him out while picking grapes this afternoon in the beautiful sunshine. What an amazing day! The fall colors are just starting and I realize that I need to post "this week in the garden" soon...
