Miss Sassy had a riding lesson last weekend. She loves horses and used to ride when she was younger. Eventually it became too difficult to get her up onto the horses. We are thrilled to find therapeudic riding just a few minutes away! Complete with ramped platforms allowing riders to get *down* onto a horse which is much easier for her to achieve!
It wasn't long before Miss Sassy felt comfortable back in the saddle!
Gadget Girl is excited, too. The stable is taking on new volunteers to help with the spring riding season! She's already helped lead and side-walk with several lessons and is scheduled for many more. When I arrived to pick her up the other day, I found her "schooling" a horse. Hmmmm... looked a lot like riding to me! I think the instructors have figured out a sure-fire way to keep their volunteers excited.
Academic fair was this week. This is an hour-long event scheduled so that parents can walk around and
visit with other parents ask intelligent questions about 300 or so topics presented by the kiddos. Like Demeter and Greek farming. Just ask youngest kiddo about those and she'll launch into a five minute explanation. The next kiddo will tell you about Athena or food or... I'm still trying to figure out how to see 300 booths in an hour....
Here is Miss Sassy with her booth!
And the latest trombone rehearsal. Hmmmm... lots of grinning, plenty of food, but no trombones anywhere in the photo... We really DO play for a while first. Honest!
