Our Friday Morning

                              Today I'm linking up to Andrea's blog with my Friday Favorites.

This morning feels like a Saturday morning, or what a Saturday morning used to be like before the kids played sports.  :)
I love early mornings when it's quiet in the house and still dark outside.  A couple of soft lights turned on and kids snuggled up on the couch watching a movie, while I drink my coffee and read my morning blogs.  It's such a nice way to start our day.

Gracie was watching the movie with Emma before she had to head into practice.  She was chilling, waiting for her ride.  I used my phone to take these pics... she had major red eyes so I tried to fix them, but it didn't work too well.  I was too lazy to get out the big camera... next time.  ;)

Emma only made it halfway through the movie Atlantis.  She wasn't a fan.  She was hoping it would be scary.  Strange child.  Ha!  ;)
 Jesse loves to sleep in and since there wasn't any school for the kids yesterday or today, I've been letting him catch up on his sleep.  So needless to say, he missed out on our nice quiet morning.

Dan comes home this evening from his business trip and he will be thrown right back into our crazy schedule.  Jesse has a soccer tournament tomorrow morning and Gracie has to be at the school in the morning to get on the bus for their teams first basketball game.  Gracie's foot has been hurting and we've found out that she most likely has plantar fasciitis.  So she's decided to just be a manager this year instead of playing.  :(  I had never even heard of plantar fasciitis, until 2 weeks ago, and now it seems that everyone and there dog has it or has had it.  It's another, "quite common" that I've just never known about.

This morning a friend of mine dropped off a birthday present for me.  I LOVE it!!!  This friend of mine has been teaching me to become a better rider over the last couple of years.  He pushes me every time we saddle up.  Whether it be a different horse, a different area to ride, something almost every time.  I am usually scared every time.  I'm a chicken by nature, but at the same time I am determined, and he knows it.  I don't ever say I'm scared, (well except one time when I said, "NO way" to a steep embankment, but even then I ended up doing it.)  I love that he saw this canvas and thought of me.  "Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway."  John Wayne
I hope you all have a fun, and relaxing weekend.
