I finally, actually brought my camera, with batteries charged and all to horseback riding!
We are down to one more session, but here's Hans on Dash. Last night we rode the sensory trail and practiced transitions. Hans is good at getting his horse to stop, go, circle, turn and reverse.
We finally got some rain here. We've been in a rare 60 day drought here in the Houston area. Usually our springs are peppered in thunderstorms which I mark by cancelled soccer games and trainings. No trainings or games have been cancelled this Spring and things had gotten so dry that telephone poles started to go up in smoke around town. It's very charming to me that over these past two months, the same time I was living through the leukemia scare, each time we pass a certain fountain, Hans' wish was simply for some rain! He's just a sweet regular boy thinking about our flowers and our little tomato plants, wanting it to rain so that he can get a break from watering duty.
Elle is spending the weekend away at a girlfriends b'day party beach house weekend. Hans and I plan to hit the Woodlands Community pools preseason opening day. We've, of course, been counting down the days.
I want to say thanks to my NB mamas, who treated me for a special mom's night out this week. I received a ridiculously wonderful going away gift of the James Avery Sisterhood Ring. The meaning behind it is so special, and it's just a gorgeous thing! It has fast become one of my most prized possessions. Thanks, girls.
Med News: Got Neulasta shot yesterday at clinic sans tears. Labs were still pretty regular HGB 11.3, pLts 278, and I'm delighting in the fact that the MCV has been falling since our scare, yesterday back down to 95!
