A couple pictures of the kiddos doing their thing...

Was just downloading the camera, and realized it's been a while since I've posted any pictures of the kiddos doing their things.
What are their things? Well....Gabe's thing right now is Baseball, that's what Spring and Summer bring to our house. Sarah's thing, morning, noon and night, day in, day out, is horses. Today, we did both!

We'll start with Gabe. He tries at baseball, he loves it, but he's not the BEST player ever. He DOES have fun though, and that's what it's all about. A proud moment for him last night, he got his first run of the season (we're only 2 games in) AND batted a fellow runner in!! I am scorekeeper for his team, but I did manage this one kinda cool shot through the fence.



Sarah, as I've said, loves her horses. Well, they're not hers for real, but in her mind they are ALL hers. She rides Dibs every week, and does well, and enjoys him, but today was up for a change. She rode Rex, who is a lovely Thoroughbred, in temperament and looks. They did beautifully together and made me right proud! They did have one snaffu, which ended Ms Sarah in the dirt, and Mr Rex checking to make sure she was ok, but she made me proud and got back on! I got a few pics of her riding him. Even Elizabeth (her riding teacher) commented how well she sits him. I guess my lifelong love of horses makes me so happy to see her love them...like we share that bond.
So..here are Sarah and Rex, and Rex's pretty face. I find him to be so friendly looking. (AND..we STILL love you Dibs!!)
