I have been a little tardy in blogging this past week and even reading. I have been busy taking care of my other half and working. I sit down in the chair and fall asleep. I think the weather has a lot to do with it.
We had to take a picture of Baby Sister so that I could make Matt a new t-shirt with Sister on it for him to wear at the horse shows. He thought grandma needed a picture to look at while I am working on it.
He showed her in the halter class here a couple of weeks ago. They had 21 horses in the event so there wasn't a lot of hope for him and the smallest horse in the group, but he had fun and that is all that is important. He was very busy that weekend. For a while he was going from his pony to Cleo. It was a good thing that they have two different saddles for him to use. He got tired even if he didn't want to admit.
He has a red shirt similar to his big brother. This past weekend he didn't get to show either Saturday or Sunday because it was 4 H or FFA
members only. The next picture is of big brother and you can tell that he is very serious when he shows. He can smile, but you don't see it to often because of the concentration.

|Matt with the Judge|
The judge was talking with Matt on Cleo. She talked with a lot of the kids about different things.
The show that this picture was taken in there was only 402 entries. If you placed you were lucky. Jake made the cut in one class of 21 to be one of the top six, he didn't place, but he was the youngest one out there. It was in a senior event so you can imagine the ages.

This past weekend he didn't get to show, but brother had a good two days showing. He had 4 first and 2 seconds on Saturday showing Cleo. The placements paid money so he will be getting a check.
On Sunday, he showed Fergie and it was an awesome day because he won a belt buckle for high point in his age group. You can see him being presented the belt buckle and what it looks like up close. He was so excited he couldn't tell me what placements he got, but the points were there for the buckle. I was hoping for him.
We didn't get to go because it was to hot and neither arena had any shade. We will go this weekend because they have shade and I can park the car where he can watch and I can run it if I need to.
I went to a baby shower for my great niece. She has a medical degree and is doing her residency in Minneapolis. She has decide to go into family medicine for which I am glad because we need more family doctors. I had a good time and got to see family that I hadn't seen for awhile. We started outside and had to move it inside because of the weather, but we didn't really get anything. I hope you all have a good week.
