Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

Have you heard that before?  
It seems as though this world keeps going faster and faster.
Can't keep up most days and then wonder why I am a day or so behind?!
I could settle for a slow down at any time.  It'd be nice to be able
to take notice of everything around me instead of just a glance and it's
gone.  It's already closing in on  the end of the second week in February.
Where in the world is the time going?!  Geesh!!! 
Our winter hasn't been much of a winter here. Not much snow for the kids to go outside to play.  We had a few nice days last weekend so the girls could ride their horses.  I even got to ride too.  The first day I rode our trusty little Mustang, Loci.  Next up was Reebok, Pixie's horse.  Both are such good animals.  Where was my Black Jack? Well he was left in the paddock one day and the other left tied to the trailer.  He's BUDDY SOUR!!!!!  In a bad way, almost in a dangerous way!  So I'm still working separating him from the rest of his buds.  Anyone out there reading this, have any idea's of what I can do to help ease things with him? He's a great horse to ride, it's getting him to that point that is the hard part.  The other 2, go out alone or together and are just fine.  Anyhow, Pixie made me wear her helmet while riding her horse.  Little stinker told me that if I wanted to ride her horse I had to wear a helmet or I wasn't getting on!  Can't argue with that, can I?  The girls had music going, and flags in hand as they rode.  They are practicing for the drill team!! Wow!  To think a year ago they wouldn't have even dreamed of going faster than a walk/trot.  Now it's speed events and drill team.  They make me so proud as they try new things and succeed.  The looks on their faces when they achieve what they set out to do, is priceless.  Keeps me busy but a happy busy if that makes sense.  At least I know where they are and what they are doing.  They aren't hanging out at the mall or playing video games, they are being kids and having fun!! Love it!!!
I hope that where ever you are, you are enjoying life!  It's a journey to say the least.
