Today we’re getting on the road to pick up Hailey from sleep-away camp, which is nice because it’s been entirely too quiet here and every day I worry that she’s not eating or sleeping or brushing her teeth or that her arms have fallen off. We did get a picture though from her camp counselor and Hailey looks very happy but I couldn’t help but notice that she is missing a saddle. Victor says that’s the second stage of horse camp…the part where you learn to ride bareback, but my first thought was that they’d run out of food and were boiling down the leather to eat. Victor is probably right, but I’m still bringing oranges with me in case she has scurvy.
But while I’m gone, I’m leaving you with a short slow-motion video I took of Dorothy Barker jumping so you can see why I’m convinced she has mutant super powers:
PS. This is how I look when my food comes too:
