Another summer update

Did you know grass dies when the temperatures are over 100 for over two weeks?

Rob and I moved into our new house a couple of weeks ago and the previous tenants hadn’t done a great job keeping the grass happy. Now, after two weeks of 95-105+ humidity… the grass is having a hard time. We bought a sprinkler (after realizing that Wal-Mart, Target, and Lowes were all sold out) at the co-op, and have tried to breathe some life into the lawn. Its a slow process, but I can see some small patches of green trying really hard to repopulate the scorched brown spots.

In other news, we have been riding a bit in between the 100 degree weather. I don’t remember all the small rides, but the biggest and most exciting event was the cross country schooling at Meadowcreek Park. Rob and I took Gracie and Knots, and we also brought a couple of students with Maggie.

We had a really great time. Gracie was very game when Robert was committed to the jumps, and Knots was more relaxed than he has been at other off site group rides. This was definitely some good prep for me to mentally prepare for Pine Hill in October. I’m trying to get back on the bandwagon, but be prepared, its getting crazy as we approach back to school time.
