I’m blogging on my husband’s computer this time around – once again mine is having issues. Maybe the fan is going out? Maybe it’s ready to kick the bucket? It is almost 9 years old after all.

Last week just flew by while Row and I were in Kansas City. I missed J’s first Ceili class – but my husband got her there on time, in the right clothes and with lunch!  The house was a tad bit trashed but hey – at least J got to where she needed to go and they were both fed and happy right? Right.

Row’s team did super last week -coming in first place! out of 5 teams competing in there division – I am so super proud of her. She overcame a huge obstacle of just going. She’s very shy and introverted so she needed her down time while we were there – but she went, was on a team with 3 other girls she had never met before and they all did wonderfully! They pulled in a score of 512 – the next team had 487 I believe – so a 25 ish point lead!

J and I are heading back there at the end of the month for another Feis and a huge Irish Festival! Sounds like it’s going to be a great time!

Keep your eyes here in the next couple of weeks. I am planning on creating “Crafternoon” crafts for the teen and tween set. I see a lot of crafts out there for the younger set and tons for us moms – but no so many for that oh so hard age – tween. My girls and I will be coming up with some wonderful crafts to do – most in an afternoon or so and I promise they will be a lot of fun! Or at the very least interesting  –

Pharma – Row’s new horse continues to be wonderful. I hope to sneak some pictures of my daughter and HER new girl her soon. Every time I pull out my camera they make themselves scarce.  I do believe this match will work perfectly.

Until next time –

Bright Blessings!





Busy week again this week. My oldest and I are heading out to Kansas City for a Pony Clubs Champs competition. She’ll be competing in the Quiz portion. She’s nervous but I think she’ll do a fantastic job.

This past week was mostly spent making Kimonos for 2 girls that will be riding a “duet” in the dressage portion of the show. I’ll take a pic of the kimonos on the girls this week. They turned out really well! I, of course, can see all the flaws and if they were being worn for something other than a  4 minute ride, then I think I would have ripped out some stitching and fixed it! Oh well – the judges won’t look too closely at my sewing ability.

Last weekend jaia place 3rd in her reel and 3rd in her jig – so good placements in 2 dances she normally doesn’t place in.

Today we are off to the barn to clean some stalls before we head out to KC!

Have a fantastic week!

Bright Blessings –
