The horse show went really well! Though it was quite cold all day, the horses were willing and the riders enthusiastic as ever. I even won a 3rd place ribbon in my jumping class, and a 2nd place in my flat class! I helped with tacking, grooming, and holding horses. There were corgis running around everywhere, which made my day.
A few weeks ago, my Montserrat professor had our class over to dinner at his house. Being one of the only two van certified drivers in the class, I drove half of my fellow students, following our professor’s car, a twenty minute or so drive. His two grandsons and daughter were there, also with his wife, and they were all very welcoming and warm. One grandson is recently born, as our class got updates on the birth and naming process, and he was precious. The other grandson, Sebastian, is older and insisted on playing hide and go seek with one of my classmates for quite a while. He was absolutely adorable. The meal was very much appreciated, as is any break from repetitive Kimball food.
Tomorrow we go home on Easter break. I can’t believe how time flies, freshmen year can’t possibly be coming to a close already! High school seems a far away blur, and I’m ready to take on the next adventure.
Hope all is well, happy holidays!
