"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Too, too much; blessed but stressed!

Hi friends!
This is the only place I document all our family "doings" and it's pained me to have fallen so far behind.
You all know our country internet is the worst so when our air card finally broke we just gave up using the laptop and used our phones. Lately I've found a few seconds to stop inWestminster with the Mac n use free wifi. Wow, you city folks have FAST internet!!! I'm going to try to post from town from now on!
Let's see, a LOT has been going on so I'll throw up some highlights and come back (soon?!) with individual posts on some things....

A tease of our BIG project - a flip house we just finished after nearly ONE YEAR!

The only pic I have from all our family rides at Hunter Paces! My kids (n hubby) GALLOPED!

Jack also galloped round his first school race to WIN his 200 m

Sarah 's not a quitter w/her tough pony or loooong race - she was 2nd in her 800m!!!

Jack (6yrs) found his confidence late spring and asks to canter n jump in the ring now!

Look at him go. So sad I have none from the hunter paces where he hung on her neck w/out falling as we raced!

Another big project - chicks n their house. GIVEAWAY post to follow SOON!

Yes, this sick pony came IN MY HOUSE while I also nursed sick kids n sick me! Later goat was very sick TOO!
We're ALL sick of all the craziness.
Here you can see The Farmer trying to mess with me while I take pics of the flip house.
(I think he's gone a bit soft in the head from all the work lately! teehee)
He's sick of equipment fixes! Balers, hay elevators, spray rigs, washers, trucks...
The Farmer's been spraying, planting and making hay nonstop!
Too bad  Lucky (?) that we're all so good at DIY.

We're ready to move into the lovely little flip house in the city for a long nap n high speed internet!

Oh well, we're hangin' on and have missed catching up with friends n family.
Back soon! Hope your springs not been affected by the crazy storms?!

So there is at least one advantage to living in town lol -high speed internet. Looks like you have been busy and the peeks at the flip house are making me want to see more.
