This time of year gets to me. When the mercury climbs and the sun won’t relent, my mind goes back. It was on a midsummer day nearly four years ago that my then two-year-old son nearly drowned. I took my four children to a friend’s house to spend an afternoon cooling off in their pool. My friend and I sat in the shallow end of her pool keeping watch as our combined six children splashed and swam the day away. My two-year-old stayed at my side on the pool’s lagoon, spraying the other kids with a stream from a water gun he’d taken a liking to.

Jan. 4, 2006 - They meandered down the trail, a long line of
horseback riders raising a small cloud of dust barely visible from
the road. Some of the riders had smiles on their faces, while the
wranglers leading the trail ride appeared more subdued, perhaps
even a bit weary, as they came closer to the stopped vehicle at the
entry to the ranch. Instead of waiting to find out how the horses
and novice riders would react to a moving vehicle, the wranglers
stopped the ride and waved the car forward. Once it had passed, the
ride continued toward the corral, the "dudes" unaware of the
concerns of the wranglers. The horses had not reacted adversely to
the running vehicle and none of the guests had ended up on their
butts or heads. It was just another item for guests to add to a
letter home about their day at the White Stallion Ranch - "The ride
was wonderful, and the horses as gentle as could be."
