My oldest sister (she's technically my half-sister, from my dad's first marriage - we are over 10 years apart in age and didn't really grow up *together* although she was a fairly big part of my childhood up to when I was about eight or so and she married/moved away) - who, for various reasons, I have not seen since before I had children (and DD will be 16 next month) may be coming for a visit in like three weeks!!!!!!!
She wants to come and be here for/during the fair and DD's show days - which is a double blessing because she just happens to run her own boarding/lesson/training business where she lives (Mississippi) and will be a HUGE help to DD during that time.
I could just about jump up and down I am so excited (and also kind of nervous).
It's not 100% a sure thing yet, but she was actually looking at plane tickets this morning and going back and forth with DD on FB about it all (she and DD have become very close over the last few years since DD got a horse and had her horse-aunty to talk to about all that stuff).
I just REALLY hope this gets to happen! We have so much catching up to do.......
