two for tuesday

Youth Day, 2009.

And now we have

Youth Day 2010.

A lot happens in a year.

Last year, my hand was on her leg, making sure she didn't keel over. This year, it was on her brother's leg, making sure *he* didn't keel over.

No one keeled over.

And now everything with four legs is t.rex's bony. MY BONY. MINE. MY BONY.

Timer never flies so quickly as when we're having fun around horses.

So I expect next year to see her doing those rodeo tricks -- standing on the saddle, flipping around, under and back onto the pony. Maybe a running mount from behind the animal. Onetothreesteps and UP! Onto the saddle as easily as jumping over a fire hydrant. Over by us, we're still going to be walking in a slow oval, led by a a young man who is just trying to get through his days without hearing too much screeching, or witnessing too many slices of birthday cake making unplanned reappearances after bumpy rides on ponies, camels, or giant inflatable water slides.
