The girls have been waiting anxiously for horse camp to begin. We have been counting down the weeks! A is a true horse enthusiast but we couldn't resist signing J up for some lessons as well. So they were both up early this morning in their jeans and boot rearing to go meet their horsey pals "Beau" and "Bob". They are taking lessons at some stables south of town for 6 weeks. Hopefully they will both enjoy it enough to continue this fall! P took all the pictures for me through the viewing window so you will have to pardon some of the technical issues ;) A is timid by nature but really wowed us with her ability to jump right up on her horse and take charge. J didn't have any problems either...but we didn't expect that from her personality!
Here they are learning how to brush their horses
Walking into the arena
Learning to walk their horses
Riding backwards :) Love this little smirk J is giving us!
A taking her job a bit more seriously
Such a fun morning for them! I can't wait to watch them progress over the next couple of weeks!
So...things may be quiet here over the next few days. We are heading to Nebraska for a week with "Mimi","Baboo", and "The Writer". The girls are looking forward to some seriously fun cousin time!
And a quick Sam update: Doing MUCH better on the Nutramigen formula. I think we are going to go broke feeding him though! We are slowly weaning him to the bottle and he is SO much happier! We are already seeing major improvements and hoping he will feel even better once he is completely weaned. I'm trying to move on...and just relishing having a HAPPY baby again :)
