Like headless chickens we are

We are scurrying around packing, watering, changing oil and tires, arranging chores, wrapping up work that must be done before leaving, getting horses shod, etc. etc. etc. (Ah, a vision of deliciously buff Yul Brynner in The King and I just came to mind!) Leaving for six days with everything needed for three people and three horses - and making sure everything on the homefront is also taken care of - is a LOT of work! Rick and I sometimes look at each other and wonder if it's worth it, but Brian SO excited, and I know we will be making memories with him that will last a lifetime.

Until our return with memory cards full of pictures (to lambs that have grown exponentially in our absence!), I leave you with a couple shots of my Goldmound spirea, the first with the species geranium in the background:
That's it for June from . . .

You answered your own question. Yes, it is totally worth it. You'll get unpacked and sorted out in the next month and will have these memories for the rest of your lives. I took forward to reading about it, and I don't ride.

I hope you have a great time! We're preparing for a trip, too. Lots of preparation and faith in farm sitters, eh?
