Pictures - Finally! :-)

Okay, I have been off here for a few days now.. Mainly working through my TeacherLine course through PBS, watching the RRO on eTopps come and go (I missed it... But that's okay, I am having fun trading my cards for other cards anyway!). I also got to spend a lot of time with Daisy...

So, to play a little catch up here: I had predicted the RRO to come out Friday evening. Instead, it came out at 11:00a on Saturday. At that time, I had been out to feed Daisy, and then I got Tyler's bike (Tyler is my son) fixed to where he could ride it. So, I missed the RRO to be with my kiddos - as I told the folks on the eTopps boards - I believe I won that trade-off! :-)

So, Thursday and Friday, Emily spent the day with me at work again. She was the hit of the day with my co-workers! Of course, that meant having no time to pop in here and update my blog, but that's okay, too.. :-)

Saturday, like I said, I fixed Tyler's bike. Late in the afternoon, we got Daisy out and everyone took turns riding her. I took her out into the cow pasture and rode her around, including making her climb a few steeper areas - mainly to see how she would react to the different terrain. She did great! :-) I still have to work on making her run faster... That is more my own issue than hers... I haven't mastered the whole 'rhythm' thing when riding at faster speeds... :-)

After we all rode for a couple hours and then Emily and I gave Daisy a bath. She loved the cool water and never flinched as I sprayed her off and washed her down. She was pretty dirty so i have no idea when the last time she had been bathed! After that, Emily and I fed turned her out and fed her, then refilled her water tub.

Today (Sunday), we gave Daisy a break since we rode her pretty hard yesterday between all of us that rode (Me, Emily, Shan, Shan's Mom, Shan's Dad, Shan's Sister and Brother-in-Law). Plus, the weather here has been thundering with some lightning... Tonight, it is raining some...

I finally have pictures to post of Daisy.. :-) Let's see if I can post these pictures correctly....

  1. Well, how 'bout you! Blogging! What in the world? The chief cook and bottle washer for computer tech services at a school co-op has a damn blog. Uh...no offense but WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?

    Hey, I belong to an on-line forum at Vanity Fair Magazine's web site. I posted a thread recently titled 'Public Education in the US' and it's all about what people think needs to be done to improve the public educational system. Any thoughts? Go to
    www.vanityfair.com/forum/vfdish and then scroll through the first few pages until you find it, if you'd care to. I've written quite a lot about your school co-op in that thread. My user name is burghman.

    I loved the blog and especially the pics. Keep it up. ~ Uncle Bill
