I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

Pony Express day

So I was all excited about this one. Pony Express day fascinates me. I told mom once that when I get older I wanted to work for the post office and deliver the mail on horse back!
Well any way, my idea was this: I knew I wanted to either walk or ride a horse for this one, and my friend, Tracy, up the street has a horse that I LOVE. She lets me bring him for walks any time. So I decided I would walk Handy Man to the post office to get our mail!....handy had other Ideas! He decided he wasn't going to let me get the halter on him. He does this fairly often (We're still working on it!) and usually I don't let him get away with it but I haven't been feeling too good and he quickly wore me out. So instead of walking Handy I just had mom take my picture with Levi - one of Tracy's other horses. Below is me and Levi and above is Handy being a jerk.
The horses at the barn (Minus Handy Man), from Left to right. Tonka, Levi and Me, and CJ hiding his head.

All the Pony Express riders were given red shirts, SO I wore the reddest one I own....Though you can see I still have my silly Tweed dress on!
