I forgot to post a picture of Shelby on Friday for Magnolia's Homecoming...isn't she cute! It was "Coooollllldddd!" Burrrrrr
On the way she was reading (yes!! reading!) her Pony Scouts books...she LOVES this series...
She is such an awesome rider for being so young! She has come sooo far and it's hard to believe she's only been riding since April 10th! She will compete in the Color Breed Congress horse show in Tulsa, Oklahoma November 12-15! She will miss 2 days of school but this is BIG TIME! She's stoaked! I'm nervous but it's gonna be SOOOO FUN! She's also getting a new outfit! She will be in purple!! Can't wait to make this one! We've ordered purple chaps and then I'll get to work on the shirt :).
Another big thing about this week is that Shelby quit dance. It became a struggle and her heart just wasn't in it. She was dancing because she thought I wanted her to, not because she wanted to. I want her to be happy and do what she feels is "her thing"! She was upset because she thought I was going to be upset she didn't want to dance anymore. I felt awful because she thought that. It just wasn't "her thing" and she just doesn't have that "lime light" personality or competitive spirit. When she rides, she is THE MOST confident and happy girl I'VE EVER SEEN and dance didn't bring that out in her anymore. It was just time. She danced for 5 years and as she said, "That's a long time and it's just time for me to stop." She is beyond happy to just be a rider now. She can now focus solely on her riding and horse shows. She was just involved in too much and I'm happy she's mature enough to realize that she needs to do what her heart tells her, not what others think.
