It’s (Finally) Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…

Last weekend, Ian and I had one of his busiest weekends yet.  We started it off 68825_3538307996289_1608694149_non Friday with a lesson for the girls at the ranch.  Ian and I arrived late, but Tabitha did a beautiful job holding down the fort and getting the lesson started.  While the kids were untacking and grooming, she and Ian found exciting new places for him to sit.

After the lesson, Ian and I headed out to West Tennessee to go see one of my favorite families: the Rice’s.  Kathryn’s been one of my best friends since my freshman year of college.  We met through the equestrian team, and discorved that we had Western Civ together.  I think we bonded through our shared experience of late nights spent studying at her house as we struggled to earn barely passing grades in that class.

After a long drive home from Jackson, we spent Sunday finally decorating for Christmas.Rickman-20121202-00027  The boys came over after church and helped decorate the tree and put some lights up.  We haven’t been able to do anything too extravegant this year, but we still have enough for everything to be festive.

“For in Calormen, story-telling (whether the stories are true or made up) is a thing you're taught, just as English boys and girls are taught essay-writing. The difference is that people want to hear the stories, whereas I never heard of anyone who wanted to read the essays.” ― C.S.
