Saturday morning in the country

We have family in town this weekend so it seemed like a perfect time for the girls to show off their horse back riding! We all drove out into the country where they have their lessons....it is a gorgeous drive and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. We got to watch the girl get down their tack boxes and comb the horse, saddle them, and walk them to the arena. A has turned into a true equestrian...I think she has found her calling. Her instructor let her handle her horse "Beau" completely on her own today...she did her own leading, brought her horse to a trot, stopped him, turned him, etc. J had fun too although she looked a bit panicked when "Uno" took off on a trot! I snapped a couple of pictures of them in their riding gear :) Such a fun morning!




And A had her Kindergarten "meet and greet" Friday at her new school. She dropped off her school supplies and met her new teachers. She will be in a multi-age classroom that combines Kindergarten and 1st grade....she is so excited for Monday to get here!! Here she is with one of her teachers and her new BFF (they just met last week but have become best buddies already!)

More school pictures from the first day to come!!

ROFL!...odd that A's horse is named Baeu, as that is Hannah's instructors name! Hannah rode "Sadie" this weekend, she just loves her horse lessons!! She now says "Sadie" is her most fav horse...ever! Her opinion changes everytime she rides a new horse, LOL! Oh well, whatever makes her happy :)
