Comments on: Nothing in Particular… http://hornes.org/2008/09/nothing-in-particular/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: COD http://hornes.org/2008/09/nothing-in-particular/#comment-1986 Tue, 23 Sep 2008 22:46:02 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/2008/09/nothing-in-particular/#comment-1986 Delaney is 12. She took her first riding lesson for her 7th birthday, and quickly moved to weekly lessons that haven’t stopped yet! We leased a horse for a year when she was 10, and bought Skip when she was 11. Along the way I also bought a big gas guzzling SUV capable of towing the horse trailer that I also had to buy.

And yes, the HSing definately makes it easier. Delaney spends 2+ hours with Skip 4 days a week, plus horse shows on the weekend. That would never happen if she was in school all day.

Thanks for the look into the happy craziness of your lives right now, and we’ll pray for your sanity!

We figured “no private school tuition bill = plenty of money for a few horsie lessons”. Not to mention the extra time in our schedule, which really makes a difference too. Regardless, I now see the error in our logic! How old is your daughter?

Peter, sadly…no. He is quite a little dude, even if he is already six (well, as you of course know!). Most of the boys’ jerseys are really big on them the first year, Nicolas’ even more so. Parents buy with the idea that the kids can wear them at least two or three years while playing for the same team. You should see the size of the girls’ volleyball jerseys – they hang down below their shorts when they become untucked. So the girls have taken to tying those sweet little side-knots.

I hear you on the regular exercise. Maybe after this week is done…?

We already have our own idea about what might happen with the flower girls, and have warned Sandra about our respective premonitions. Hopefully we’ll get it all on film.

Been there, doing that, just back from 4 days at the state 4-H horse show. Riding lessons are the first step on the road to financial ruin. I know of what I speak, they named a section of that road after me.

Not that I don’t love every minute of it :) I’m just resigned to the fact that I’ll be the 80 year old guy handing out carts at WalMart because I spent too much money on horses in my prime earning years.
