riding lessons and a rainstorm

DD had her first riding lesson this evening. Can you say “EXCITED!” She has been looking forward to this all week.

I had planned to get more pictures, close ups, etc., but a it began to rain and they went into the barn to continue lessons there. Next time, I hope to get some better pictures.

There was a tornado warning while we were there, but the storm passed us to the north and later, another storm cell scooted around to the south. Besides the initial fat raindrops that drove them into the barn, we didn’t see rain at the farm. But, on the way home…a different story. I drove 30 miles an hour with my flashers going, wondering if I should pull over or not.

We drove through water over the road in seven or eight places. Not deep. I know better than that. 🙂 We made it safely home and, after an hour of pouring rain, it has finally subsided. We have a lake in the front yard and a river in the back yard.

This will make the grass grow. 🙂

    I love the photos of your garden but I had to comment on this post. My daughter rides and we were stuck in a huge rain storm last night. She didn’t want to go home thinking that we could wait it out…I don’t know what it is, it must be in the genes, this passion to ride.
