Last week I promised to take Hannah horseback riding. She missed going to lessons with her friends because I needed her to babysit Thursday evening. Today was the day and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to spend a couple of hours on the farm. The bright, blue sky was full of puffy, white clouds and sunshine, and it felt like the perfect September day, except that it's really August.
Patience paid off and not only was Hannah able to ride, but she and the teacher went off on a trail ride instead of just riding circles inside the barn or up on the hill. Hannah returned smiling, and guess what? Emma and I had a chance to ride the horses too. How cool is that?
