Things are going really well for us here, mid cycle. Hans is actually usually doing fine when he is actually taking his med, it's the week that follows (Days 8 - 15) where he can have a hard time. I'm thrilled with how he is doing and my fingers are crossed that we'll sail through next week. Scans happen just after Valentines Day back in Philly.
These two pics from Saturday morning - grooming Ginger before Hans and I got to do a trail ride. It was awesome - the only thing that I was nervous about was that I was the one holding the lead. Hans took the reins, but moms or dads hold the lead! Yikes - but it went well. We are at the Conroe YMCA Equestrian Program...it's great! He seems to have had more energy lately. We spent all afternoon doing yard work and then went out to our friend Dana's 40th b'day celebration, and he was up and 'partying' until 11 ;) Pretty good!!!
Aunt Susy asked about Elle - let's see - the big news is she won her student council bid last week! She's also on one of two teams of kids that reads the announcements on the Wilkerson News Network, she just had her last volleyball game of the season thru the YMCA, and soccer is gearing back up. They played their first 11 v 11 scrimmage yesterday...the kids play 8 a side til the age of 13, then they go to a bigger field, more players, etc. We are all excited about that change next year. AND... we had parent info nite for the incoming 7th grade class at her Junoir High. I understand our choices a lot better. We figured out how many Pre AP courses she'll take (3 out of 4- we decided not to do Pre AP Texas State History) and she has decided to go out for Cross Country since there is no "real' soccer at the Jr. High level. She just joined Running Club at her school she's loving it. She is also selling girl scout cookies, well, sort of! We're kind of slacking at that this year.
Kevin and I keep trying to squeeze rides in, but the hardest part is keeping huge chunks of our schedule open for the long rides!!!
