We got back from Wichita on Sunday night really late. Kristee is really enjoying her time on break and being able to relax and not think about having to get up and go to school. We had a really good time in Wichita, I would say that we spent the majority of the time on Saturday at a horse auction. I wasn’t even planning on going, but the women wanted Ian and I to come up to the auction to see the horses. I think that mainly wanted Ian, but I went along with him to go look. Needless to say they walked out of there with 2 horses, a pony for Ian named Matt. (I love the name) And a horse for Nancee named lightning. Halee loved the pony and kept calling it her pony, which is fine, I don’t think that Ian minds. We spent the rest of the day watching the horses.
We went to Metro (our old church), I went up to the sound booth and finally got to see the Macs that they have been using for the worship service. I think that is awesome!!! After church we went over to Kamra and Ian’s place to ride the horses and pony. Halee was so excited they bought her new cowboy boots and she loves them and she was ready to ride her pony. Kristee was the 1st to ride with Kamra and Nancee and she was little nervous because it had been awhile since she had been on a horse, she did just fine and had a great time. Believe it or not I was actually excited about riding the horses myself. I was a little scared, it had been about 10 years since my last horseback ride. Once I was up on the horse all the fears that I had were gone. It was a blast and I look forward to doing it some more. Then once we were done we got out Matt and let Halee get on him with me walking beside her holding her so that she didn’t fall off. She had a great time and loved it, on Monday she was wanting to go back and ride her pony.
Now we are back in Lee’s Summit just relaxing around the house. It is actually kind of nice not to have to go anywhere, we can just hang out and enjoy each other. I also found out last week that Mom is going to be making a trip up here over Labor day weekend and we really look forward to her coming up to see the kids. It is enjoyable having people come and visit us just because the kids sleep better and enjoy being in their own environment. We are excited about Mom coming and I am sure that Halee and Gavin will really enjoy having her up here.
