Mielle and Sweetpea

My love for my kids looks like an open fire hydrant on a hot day. It feels like that, a huge surge straight out of my chest. I get that feeling when I see Mielle up on a horse so confident and focused.

This is Mielle at her weekly riding lesson at Piedmont Stables. This is a kid in heaven.

My daughter is age 6, almost 7. She had a dream that Senator McCain climbed into her bedroom window and Senator Obama walked in through the door. They had a fight in front of her while she sat in bed and watched. She said(in her dream) that she found it very entertaining and giggled while it happened.
