I can't believe it but today is Rio's FIRST BIRTHDAY!! A year ago today Rio was born on a chilly April morning. She turned out not to be what I expected but what a gift I have received. She's has learned so much over the last year, as have I. As I look back over the last year some common cliches come to mind... "Good things come in small packages", "Watch what you wish for", "Good things come to those who wait", I could go on and on. It has been fun and some days challenging working with Rio and preparing her to be a well-behaved and useful mount. Even after she does something that frustrates me she looks at me with those big brown eyes as if to say "What'd I do?". Of course then I just sigh and kiss her on the nose and we move on or try again. She will never be her mama but I've come to love the things that make her unique. I'm looking forward to seeing how she matures over the next few years and to see what I will end up doing with her. Will she follow in her mother's footsteps and be an accomplished show horse or will she be a trusty trail mount? Only time will tell. But until then I plan on enjoying training her and appreciate the fact that I can even have a horse, let alone two in this day and age.

In celebration of her birthday we threw her a little party at the barn. Of course her "grandma" and "grandpa", and even her "great-grandma" were on hand for the festivities. I even tried to make her a "cake" out of carrots, oats, and molasses. She seemed to enjoy herself and her barnmates snacked on "party favors" just for them. While "guests" helped Rio celebrate a video of Rio's birth played and pictures of her mama as a newborn foal and weanling were on display.

Cursive writing reflects writers’ art in which they write words in looped or italicized writing style. Many graduates, scholars, and working professionals practice Cursive Writing Format to demonstrate their writing attributes or pursue their interests. Practicing writing is a good skill to have as this may help people to write an invitation or a letter. When things come to technology and living in the digital world, rarely you find people with pen and paper to write something. With the increasing acceptance of smartphones, tablets, and any online or digital medium, it is uncommon for people to communicate through handwritten pieces. Scholars are specifically asked to learn cursive writing because school authorities want them to pay attention to writing skills more than entering the words in a paper. Make sure to keep all things handy while working on writing skills such as pen, pencil, eraser, and note pad.
