Well, my PBS TeacherLine training is all done! From the grades I see posted for my work, it looks like I am in fact going to be a Certified TeacherLine Facilitator! YAY! And, just as I finish that online course, it urns out the Distance Learning Coordinators (which I am one!) will be starting an online course to become certified through an organization in Texas (CDLR, I believe but I could be wrong.. LOL). So, here we go again, I guess!
Emily wanted to go out riding yesterday (Friday), so I saddled up the horse and several of us rode her around for a bit. Something was wrong wit the way her bit sat in her mouth or something because she was not happy about it... I tried adjusting it, so I'll have to watch that in the next couple days... Oh, I should stop here and talk about how little miss Daisy led me to the back right edge of her pen area before she would let me get a lead rope on her... Silly girl! She was not happy to see me since I was wanting to saddle her up before she ate! So, I'd take a few steps, and she'd let me get close, but not close enough to grab her halter... Then she'd take a few steps, eyeing me the whole time... Once I got her cornered, it was a showdown, and I knew I'd lose if I went in hard and fast to get her, so I just meandered a little, put my hand on her side and talked to her, then grabbed the halter. She never flinched... In fact, I am pretty sure she was smiling about the whole thing... That little snort she gave after I attached her lead rope was a laugh, I'm sure! :-)
After riding, or really, while other people were riding, Emily and Tyler and I kicked the soccer ball around a bit (it is a small one, pink with Disney Princesses on it - wanna guess who owns that one?). I helped Em ride her bike, too...
Shan made cinnamon rolls before she came out to watch us riding, so after we were done, I went in and had one! Excellent after-ride treat, lemmie tell ya! :-) Of course, since it contained no chocolate, it did not count as dessert, so I ate a fudgecicle after the roll... :-) I may not be doing what I need to do to lose weight, but I'll die happier.... :-) (or something like that)
Guess I better skee-dattle... I am doing this at work (dont tell my boss) before heading out to a school to do some audio troubleshooting... :-)
Hide-The-Oats! (that's "Adios" in Dave-speak)
