What happened at the Derby?

*Olivia on her horse

Our family is still in shock over the loss of Eight Belles at the Kentucky Derby this afternoon. It is truly a great tragedy of the equine world. She was euthanized right there on the track before the world. Olivia had somewhat of a tough time as she began thinking of her own horse. Then of course all of our thoughts quickly turned to Barbaro. We still had a wonderful afternoon and cannot wait until we can attend the Derby in person.

The children are very excited about Chief and GrandMaMa arriving Monday. Tomorrow will most likely be my last post until after Orren's surgery. This is a quick one as it is time to tuck everyone in!
