So I can officially say I have passed all my classes and I have one more semester to go! YES! Murphy is back in work walking and trotting and man has it been cold in South Carolina. Like thirty degrees! It has been so nice to have my spotted horse to ride around on again. He is such a pleasure to ride and a joy to have in the barn. I am a very lucky girl. I also got a couple really good Christmas presents before I left too. One of my students Allison and her horse Radar have been working very hard during the fall to develop connection, confidence, relaxation and most importantly to start working together as a team and it is so exciting when everyone gets it! All of the other students have been doing really well, and Bijou was perfect before I left. I am excited to get back in January and start competing again.
On another note, I absolutely love Christmas! It is my favorite time of year because I get to spend time with my family and my friends and go home to a blustery, cold Chicago, Although I have yet to make it there. Currently in route visiting my family in Ohio. Yesterday I spent about 2 hours in the card isle at Target, quite hilarious. I encourage all of you to go spend forty or fifty dollars on hilarious cards for Christmas. :) Anyway I think what is most important is that I am surrounded by people who support me and push me every single day. Thank you guys for putting up with my crazy dreams... as my Dad says, Jaclyn I have no idea how you do it... but somehow you do.
Merry Christmas! GO to Target... !
