horsing around

We experienced a grand tour of the horse stables this past Friday. One of the dads in my school community gives horse tours in the area, and he kindly told us all about the horses and even "shoed" a horse in front of the children! They got to ride the gentlest of the animals - some even rode by themselves in a corral.

Another highlight of the day was the hilarious sheep "chase." A rope was loosely tied around the neck of a ewe (what a good sport she was!) so that when the end was pulled it would easily come off. Small groups of children were put in the corral with the ewe and were charged with removing the rope from her neck. I'm not sure who laughed more - the children or the adults watching them!

It was a nice way to draw to a close the first half of this second semester. Bring on the vacation!

xo,
Meg

Looks like a fun day! My kids would love doing something like that!

I received my Apron Book, and blogged about it. I'm sitting here at work with the book under my files so I can read it all! LOL!

Thanks again for choosing my name!! Can't wait to see the finished pattern!

Wow Meg, those kids look like they are having a blast. You must be having such an experience with them. I dont have kids yet but we are thinking about it. From your blog I have started looking into Montessori learning and it is fascinating. When the time comes I hope that can be an option for us. Enjoy the sun. Love Stacy
