Back in the saddle with Chispa

Tuesday, Frodo and I arrived home (late in the evening) from Spain, just in time to crash in bed. Wednesday, after a bit of teaching in the morning, I headed off to pick up Chispa from the babysitter. Would she remember me? Would she have grown?

Well, she did seem to remember me, and pretty soon, it was business as usual. Chispa laying on my feet. Chispa pushing a toy on my feet.

And…I guess she grew a little bit. She’s now somewhere between 18.25-18.75″ tall…she’s squirmy, so my pencil against the wall method of measuring is just a general estimate at best. I have no idea how much she weighs, and I likely won’t, until she goes in to the veterinarian next, which will not be for some time, I hope! And in any case, it doesn’t really matter, her height OR her weight; it’ll be what it’ll be, and I have full faith that she’s going to be an amazing jumper. 🙂

I’ve been recovering from the time zone change all week, and so this morning was the first morning that I was organized enough to actually do some productive training with the girl. I have a long list of “to do” items, and it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed, or behind, and try to attack everything all at once. But, then I remind myself, we are where we are, there is plenty of time, progress is measured in very small steps…
