My girls, pole bend, barrell race the whole sebang the youngest Gianna just topped everyone for the year in every event she was in. Her sister is pres of the association they have been doing this since the were each abot a year and a half old and could sit up alone. Being on a horse is more natural than walking for them. They are expected to take care of their horses, walk and cool them down after the work out, they feed and help tend to brangus cattle. They live on 650 acres near Mariposa, Hornitos and love it. As far as the cowboys go they are not allowed to date yet although Alyssa went to her first formal dance last month and can now drive. They are good kids, ones you don't have to worry about so far There parents, my son and his wife have wisely taught them you earn the good things by hard work. We are so proud of all the kids.

And as spontaneous as our original civil ceremony was.

I really felt we were a family then.
That brought tears to my eyes Fiona.....I bet there wasn't a dry eye in the church. Just lovely, and thanks for sharing.

Thank you Kayelle. I consider myself very lucky to have met and married DH and his children.

The funny part...the eldest son is 7 years younger than me. We are an odd mix and we all love each other.

You sound like the perfect mix, one many could take pride to be like.
