My Summer & an Update on Babe

WOW! This summer is really flying by. When the BloggingChicks theme this time was Summer I started thinking about what all I had accomplished this summer. Looking back it doesn't seem like much.

My summer class was not fun at all! Intermediate Microeconomics. But I wanted a second minor, so I sucked it up and did it. And ended up doing pretty well in that class. Better than I ever expected - an A! This class took up most of my time from June till now.

We went to Creede, CO and spent some time with the kids. See the Creede, Colorado post. When we returned home from that trip is when the excitement started. We found Babe one of our Percheron draft horses stuck in the mud. She was 5 feet deep in mud. It was horrible!! See the Babe in the Mud post. And if you would like to see more, go here to the Photos.

Here are a couple of shots of Babe now.
These are some of the scrapes she got while trying to pull herself through the silt in the dry pond.

She is doing great now! Thanks to everyone that kept us all in your prayers!

Our next venture will be going to Colorado Springs for a business meeting. The kids will be meeting us there a day before the meeting so we can all go to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. This will be the twins' first trip to the zoo. I can't wait! Until then I plan on resting, relaxing and reading. Today I started Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. If you have any other suggestions feel free to put them in the comments. Then it is back to school in August, but it is my last semester. Then my real life will begin. :)

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their summer!!

5 feet of mud? Poor Babe! Glad to hear she's doing better.

I love all of Dan Brown's book . . . especially Deception Point.

December is part of the rainy season in Hawaii but it usually doesn't get too bad. Temperatures are pretty nice, upper 70's.

Thanks for stopping by!

How terrifying that must have been for all of you when Babe got stuck. So glad she survived!!!

How exciting that your schooling is almost done :)
