cool off and head home.

we spent thursday and friday of this week doing just that. k has been working towards this for over a year now, and it was quite a thrill. she did amazing for a first go. great dressage test. clean stadium jumping, then came out of the water at the wrong spot and got off course for a moment and took an unassigned jump before realizing what was happening and getting the pony back on track to a strong, beautiful finish. she had her friend and mentor (ty and her new horse ember) at her side - and her super-groom sister keeping her calm and making sure everything was just right.

she can't wait to do this again.

goodbye middle school

MS culmination

Gaspar De Portola Middle School is known for its Sallys. (Sally Field and Sally Ride are both alumni.) But in our house its also known for its Glickmans (Renee, Marty, Drew, David, & more recently Emily ♥️). Well today the last one of our clan passed through. Congratulations K on your 8th grade culmination! Valedictorian with Distinction.
