The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Last Day of Little Wranglers...

Today was our last day of Pony Camp, and we had a great time. The kids had fun painting picture frames that held photos of each one on their favorite horse. We had a treasure hunt looking for farm items, duck and egg hunts, sang farm songs, and played with water balloons at the end of the day. Kate led the kids in games on horseback, and I could see huge smiles on each child's face as they "raced" side by side to complete various tasks.

Afterwards Kate invited us to stay and enjoy lunch with her and her charming daughters. They have been so warm and welcoming to our family, and have been such a big part of our first year in Colorado. It has been such a pleasure getting to know them! Kate and her mother have written a book together, and it was so neat to hear the story of how the project began, and to learn more about their lives.

There is so much to do in preparation for our trip, but I am so glad that we had this week at Briar Gate Farm. I have been so homesick for California, but after my time with Kate, I know I truly have someone to call "friend" when we return!

Bye for now Rocky's time to say, "Hello again" to the Sierra Nevadas!
