As I mentioned in the June post Steve's mother passed away on July 2 in Steve's arms with Leslie, me and Sophia by her side. It does not feel real. She passed too quickly. Thankfully both Aiden and Nick were able to spend time with her since her diagnosis on July 19. Emma also visited often. She knew she was loved. We miss her so much.
Sophia had another away show with Navajo. She did not do well in the first division again. I think she let this fluster her and she went off course in her first jump class. BUT I am so proud of her because she realized it was a whole new game in her second division and got 3rd place for walk/trot/canter, 2nd place for command class and 5th for jumping. She also got 6th place for the trail class. Navajo is really doing well in the command class. They are truly working as a team.
We had brunch with my sister's friend, Melissa and my mother's friends Pat and Bev. It was so nice to see everyone. I wish I lived closer. We spent a couple of hours visiting my 94 year old Aunt Philly. She is going amazing. I love hearing her tell stories. She is an amazing woman.
Twinkletoes has decided he likes Kaegogi's bed better than his. Kaegogi is not too pleased but did share without too much whining.
Until next time
