More Junior Sportswomen
As I swelter on the streets of Philadelphia walking from my garage to the office, an e-mail is forwarded by my wife. Yesterday was middle daughter's 16th Birthday and her Counselor sent this photo from Camp. My daughter is in Virginia at riding camp for 5 weeks. It is one of her favorite places on the Planet next to the Adirondacks...30 girls...35 horses...800 acre farm, pool and pond, horse shows and drive ins, roller rink and flirting with the townie boys at the lake. She left while I was in Annapolis at the Lacrosse tournament and we were both sad about that. But she sure looks happy in this photo. Her cabin was giving her a huge choclate cake after dinner and then all 30 campers plus staff will sing.She is has become a knowledable, skilled and dedicated equestrian...and now advises she wants to be a large animal Vet and is fashioning her potential college choices accordingly...at least for now. That is a hard path but if anyone can do it she can...
I miss her but I am certainly glad she is enjoying her Summer and not suffering like me....sweating thru my Poplin suit walking back from the Courthouse or from the Garage.
