Week of October 6th - 10th: Golfing, Horses and FUMCH!

This week flew by (don't they all?)!
I worked three days, AA had early dismissal on Thursday and no school on Friday!
Our days were filled with fun and more driving - we are driving so much to the Orlando area!
This week, wonderful Hubby went to a Jacksonville business and picked up a donation for our Children's Home. It was a full/HUGE pallet of shampoo. We love being able to help deliver donations (even though we did not have anything to do with getting it, we can still truck stuff to the Home!).
So Thursday, Ford and AA, after early school dismissal, drove south to the Children's Home to drop off the donation pallet, then went to her golf lesson with Mr./Coach Jason. I heard she had a great time with Jason; he is skilled at making corrections to her swing, while including lots of encouragement. She says she likes the way he makes it fun! They played nine holes together which gave Daddy Caddie a break to watch AA play instead of being in the action. We can't wait to see how well AA progresses over the coming year!
Friday was a no school day! AA golfed with her Daddy while I caught up on house chores. Then we went to AA's horse riding lesson. I am researching two other stables that may be more suited to her; we shall see. She had a great lesson with K'Leigh at Diamond D Ranch:

 She rode "Sparky" today:

We want to meet up with family somehow this weekend, no plans yet. Hoping all of them are well after a bout with strep throat! With the cooler weather, we have been going to parks for some outdoor fun (it is way too HOT and HUMID in the summer to play in the direct sun at these parks). We are also returning to our occasional shopping visit to the RAM, where we buy fresh vegetables, fruit and what ever else "tickles our fancy"! Always fun there, then a family lunch out together. Yesterday, it reached 91 degrees, so cooler weather hasn't really happened yet!

Looking at unusual activities in our area,, I found a "Catty Shack/Big Cat" Sanctuary in North Jacksonville; also an Easton Foundation archery facility just west of Gainesville (Newberry). Lots of pumpkin patches and corn maze lots are now open too. Now to plan a time to go and have fun!

I can't get over how tall AA is now. She looks so grown up! Have a great family get-together!
