I haven't written for quite a while so I will now. Thanks Danae for always putting pictures up for me. Tanner has been a good friend around the horses. He likes them and that makes me proud. Porter likes to ride too.
We got Drift sold and that will be a good thing. I may not get to ride one as nice looking as he was, but maybe some of the colts coming up will be just as good. We don't have as good a place to ride tham as the ranch was but they should turn out. I will bring them back up to Glendale in a few weeks.
Well Kensey is busy with school, cosmetology, and church. Alena is back at school and doing good. Danae is a great mother and really does good in her cub scout calling. Brian is about to be a father and has most of his CPA test passed. Brandon is still working too hard but did come up and go to a comedy show last weekend. I'm proud of all the kids and their families. Work is going good and I like my church calling. The economy looks tough so it sure is good to have a lot of things going our way.

The Best of Times and the Worst of Times

We just got home from taking Alena to BYU Idaho. We had a good time fixing up her apartment and trying to get her settled in. I did real well and didn't cry when we said good bye, at least until her door shut. At least she didn't have to see me blubber. I got stopped by the Idaho Highway Patrol for going to fast between Rexburg and Idaho Falls. He let me off when I told him we had just dropped of a new freshman. So thanks Alena!

She has been such a joy for me to be around that I will sure miss her. I know she is going to have a great time. She will come down to Salt Lake in 2 weeks when Brandon gets married. She got her young Women's Medallion before she went. I am very proud of her.

Danae came up and stayed with Kensey while she went to a prom. Brian is on vacation in the Phillipines and Brandon is all set to get married. We are thankful to have wonderful kids. They are my best friends.

Tanner's Day at the Arena

On the 4th of July I met Danae to pick up Tanner because he called that morning (and many days before also) asking if he could ride his baby saddle. We took him down to the horses and he was very excited to get to ride again. He always wants to help lead the horse over to the trailer or anywhere. As Danae said he keeps saying, Lena help Tanner falling because as we started to trot just a few steps I stopped my horse but his kept going. I was holding on to his hands on the saddle horn so he was safe i just couldn't stop the horse so I pulled him off the saddle and sat him on the ground. He was ok and got right back on the horse. He rode a little more and then we went that afternoon to Maricopa for a picnic.
