Cowgirl Kait

When I was in Jr. High, George Strait came to Snyder a couple of times. That was before he got sooooo famous. I remember developing my pictures from his concert and my Daddy complaining that we had 24 pictures that were all exactly the same. Pretty much. But to me, any picture of George rocked!

Well.... I'm afraid this series of pictures is going to seem kinda like that. While Abs was at L2L in Abilene, Kait and I spent a few days with Grannie Nelva. The best part for Kait? Riding Simon without having to share him. Max and I had a great time watching her ride. And honestly, if Abs had been there it would have kinda been a pain -- the girls use two different saddles now.

Kait on a horse is just incredible. You'd never know watching her that she doesn't get to ride all that often. She has no fear whatsoever -- she'll go as fast as she can get Simon to go. And wishes she could get him to go even faster. She has incredible retention -- she really holds on to what Max teaches her each time we're out there. And she does great on poles.

I really wish we were in a position where she and Abs could ride all the time. But you can't have it all, right? So for now, we'll live in cul-de-sac land and enjoy this season of our lives. And maybe somewhere down the road there will be an opportunity for the girls to ride more. In the meantime, we'll continue to slowly build this foundation!

Enjoy the pictures.... I know they're a lot alike, but I love each and every one of them!

Now... I know this doesn't fit them theme of this post, but this little guy crossed our paths while we were up there. I have no idea what kind of a bug this is, but he's the cutest thing I've ever seen.
