Stephanie took this picture of her friend Nicki one night after dark. I just love it.
I think it tells a lot. Nicki is just learning to ride but she loves horses. Dakota (the horse) loves anyone who will give him attention and is always happy to be the center of everything.
Apparently they both enjoyed the calm of the evening even after the kiss. Nicki is one of our favorite friends of Steph's. She is 15 but acts so much older. She is a good student and has a really good head on her shoulders. She can and is a good influence for Stephanie. She calls me Mom and calls Joe Dad. I think that is neat.
