Glad you got her loaded Vicki. Hope she's doing great at the trainer's!
Been crazy here between DD's sports, lesson kids and home/farm projects. Hope everyone is doing well!
DD is turning into quite the little soccer player. Was drafted into an older age bracket above her age (there were 3 kids from her age division that moved up) to help fill out the last of the teams for the 10 & 11 year old division (she's 8) and held her own all season with kids much larger than her. I've had such a good time watching her little self outplay boys that many are easily twice her size. Scored at least one goal every game, one game she scored 3. She did well enough she has been asked to play on a competitive indoor league through winter (on a 10/11 yr old league) she is the only girl on the roster of 15 kids and has been picked to be one of their forwards. I'm so proud of her and having so much fun watching. First indoor game is in 3 weeks and the coolest part is that (even though I'm not thrilled about traveling) she will be playing on the indoor practice field at the university I attended. She asked me a couple weeks ago "Mom, do they pay you to play soccer in college like Katie (my younger cousin) does for softball?" LOL. At 8 she hasn't quite grasped the scholarship concept. I explained it to her that no they don't actually pay you but yes, you can go to college for free if they want you to play sports for them. So now I have an 8 yr old that is already looking to play NCAA sports.
She also just did presidential fitness challenge testing at school and broke her school record for chin ups across all grades, boys & girls. Having a ladder above one of my hay stalls that she uses like monkey bars was a good idea I guess. LOL. I'm not sure I could do more than a couple these days, little stinker did 19! soccerserious.jpg
Just started another episode of "This Old Farmhouse" and are remodeling our main bathroom. Gutted it yesterday, hoping to get the new jacuzzi tub in today (so I can try it out!) and DH has taken the week off of work so we can do all of the work. Tile the floors, adding a chair rail/plank siding on the walls, scraping off the textured ceiling (no more cottage cheese ceiling, yay!) new vanity, mirror, trim, lighting. Will post before/during/afters when we get done. We've been tackling one room at a time in our 100 year old farmhouse. So far we've redone the kitchen (minus a couple new appliances that are on my save up for list so everything is stainless), new roof, added a second bath upstairs, a patio door & walk out 2 story deck off the 2nd floor living room, downstairs living room have tore down all the plaster walls & put up drywall - I'm refinishing the 100 year old woodwork/crown moulding right now to finish that room. In the spring we will be refinishing all of the hardwood floors and then on to the master bedroom. It will be so nice when it is all finished, though I suspect I will never cross everything off my list.
Anyone that wants to come help, I'll put up your horse free of charge & share my indoor for the winter.
