On to other news. It's looking to be a busy school week, and not much of a horsey one, unfortunately. However, I had a fantastic horse-related surprise at school yesterday. Twin girls that were in my class last year have an orchard at their beach house and the girls picked apples for my horse this past weekend. They were too shy to bring me the apples themselves so their mom brought them to me after school.
APPLES? Did somebody say apples?
Do you think these will help me in the catch-me-if-you-can rodeo?? My Boy is going to have to promise to share these with the mares!
To thank the girls, I used a picture of My Boy and added some text to it. I will print them out and glue the photos onto cards for them. They just love getting mail from their teachers, and the children are always so fascinated that I have a horse, so I will pop them in the mail tomorrow.
I just love building these connections with my students!
