the gift of days

...days all to ourselves.

to run
ride...on a new-to-her bike with squeezy brakes not back-pedal brakes which is terrifying and careen-ish

to entire afternoon for me, my tea and a whole world made of ink and imagination
to set a goal and pursue it and then
excel.....a fifth-place ribbon at Pony Club Quiz -- of course, not the reason why - but so full of affirming  goodness that one feels brave enough to try her D-test this spring.

to converse....about winning and losing and how mistakes are a great way to learn something
