As you know I haven't been here much lately (and now I broke the power button on my computer) So I havent seen this post. I am so glad you got a chance to ride, I always loved riding. There are many places that are theriputic centers for children with dissablities, they are very relaxing.
I went a couple weeks ago with the neighbor kids they are about 13, we were out for hours playing tag, jumping every log or stream we could find, all at a run, lol! We even had them in the lake smimming (we were soaked!) We had so much fun the girls even noticed I couldn't stop smiling. But I could barely move for 3 days, I would put celeste on the bus and go back to bed until noon!
How are you doing with every thing else, and how are the kids? I am sorry I haven't talked to you for a while, I have been thinking of you.
I hope you have been doing good, and I hope you get the chance to go for a ride again soon, it is really good for the soul (mabey not the body, until you are used to it) This post is so long, I should have just sent you a p.m. LOL!
