Shayla ended up having a very pleasant time at today's horse show and tonight she'll go to the barn to work with Daddy for a couple of hours. For three straight hours she "ribboned" at the show.
She of course said she was "ribboning" which totally cracked me up. She explained that there is a lot more to it than you'd think. You have to figure out who got first place when all of the girls come riding off at you so you can give the right one to the right rider. She also said it was hard to think of something different to say to each girl. "Because you don't want to say 'Congratulations' to each one. You have to mix it up." What a hoot!

Rabbit Skill-a-Thon! She only scored a 5 out of 10 at this station. She tattooed (on paper, whew) the rabbit's wrong ear and she went from the wrong side, oops. Now she knows!
I don't believe anyone took longer to take their test today. (Shayla took 1 1/2 hours, but perhaps this was because she made a little friend. Shayla said, "I didn't know you could make a friend by saying, "This test is really hard!" but you can. I did.)

Shayla with clippers! I am reminded when a certain little Thomas took scissors to the cat and gave her a new look, hee hee.

I'm glad she was still able to have fun at the show!

Shayla, you look fabulous doing the "ribboning"! I am so glad this all turned out so well and that you had a very special job to do!

Hey Ang,

Glad to hear Shayla made the best of it at the show. Now that she mastered the clippers she can help mom. I just clippered Duke and Dolly for her on our visit. It was great to see the two of you.

Hi Angela!

You may want to have Shayla try this site to make typing a little more enjoyable. Kayla uses it to practise (no camp for her LOL).
