Proud mom and aunt...

Lots of proud mom stuff going on this week! First off Jack had his best showing at a horse show yet this weekend. He placed in all the events he entered and even won the Champion ribbon in the Lead Line Division. They made him this shirt that says "I was Champion at Tomorrows Dream Farm".

The next day Nick's soccer team was lucky enough to have a scrimmage with the Bermudian National Team. They have been in town for training. What a great opportunity. Our boys won in a great game and they all had fun...check out this picture of the whole bunch together after the game!

Sunday was another great day. My niece Sam rode in a local Grand Prix Jumping Show. She is 14 and I was truly amazed by her riding ability. She placed in 3 of her events. The crazy thing is that kids ride against adults, men against women so when my 14 year old niece on her pony is beating people twice her age...I can't help but be a proud aunt too!

Look at the mud that day...poured rain, but the show must go on!

Looking ahead to the next jump!

This is my favorite! I am so proud of you Sammy Girl!

And just a few scrappy projects to share!
I did this layout for Marks Paper Company. I love the pop of red with the colors in the English Garden Collection.

And a few details...

We had a fun challenge on the Pebbles, Inc. blog this week. Check out this weeks recycling challenge. Whenever I come across a great tag I always keep them. This layout gave me a chance to use them.

And a few details...I also added a few of my favorite pictures here.

Well we are headed off to the beach for a few days...can't wait to have the sand and sea at my feet. Thanks for stopping by!
