Last week saw Orla compete at a small show at Welwyn, her new horse stable. She only returned to riding a week ago, after a winter layoff, but she thrilled us all by winning a bunch of ribbons, and being named Show Champion ! Eoghan got into the spirit of the fun, too, helping out with the prizes. And he’s decided that he wants to compete in future, too…
After the show it was over to Liam’s birthday party in Bangalero, where the kids had fun catching up with their friends and, since it was a yuckily hot and humid day, especially playing in the sprinkler.
During the week the kids are continuing to be busy with their classes, including a new art class that they just started. Eoghan amazed us with his rendering of a hand – perhaps he’s a budding artist. Conall continues to sprout up, and is as cute as ever. And Orla demonstrates her dry sense of humor every day. A few days ago, for example, we were talking over lunch about a new house we’re considering buying. While it has a lot of land, the house is a shambles and needs a lot of work.
Everything can be fixed“, I said.
Not mom’s cooking“, Orla shot back.
