SPRING

This past weekend was gorgeous and allowed for all good outdoor, fun things - garden planting; weeding; fort building with Lily, Julie and Heather; kayaking and just sitting in the sun. After such a perfect weekend, it was hard this morning to leave all the beauty of Thirsty Boots Farm and come to work.

Weekend Fun

So what did we do over the weekend? Well, Sunday proved to be the fun day. Heather brought George's daughter, Lily, over to build a fort in the woods. Julie helped out and once stage 1 was done, they all had a picnic.

First Riding Lesson

After Lily's beaming grin and excitement over riding Oreo, Heather and I put our heads together and thought it would be great to give Lily riding lessons. Lily's mom agreed and here she is, waiting for her first lesson over at Flight Way Farm.

She looks happy.

Within the 45 minute lesson, Lily was trotting and working on her posting!

Lily looked so serious during her lesson, I was worried she didn't have a good time. She assured me she did, stating, "If I smile for the camera, I can't focus."

Nine lessons to go (for now)!

P.S. Mrs. Schreiber reminded me it was 25 years ago that Julie started lessons with her!
