About a month ago, Avery started horseback riding lessons! She has learned a ton through the Saddle Club she was attending, and the trainer thought she was ready for lessons. She's got a long way to go, but there is really something special about watching your kid do something that she loves!

The other day I was late to pick her up. The trainer let her watch the next lesson and had Avery "counting strides" between jumps, I think? And even that, Avery just loved it! She said she wanted to stay all day and help with lessons and around the barn!

So this is some video of Avery at her very first lesson!

Evidently I've become a once per month blogger. Hmmm...

Well, I'll be getting y'all caught up over the next few days- or week- hopefully. To get ya started, here are some videos of the kids reading!! Avery is doing so awesome with her reading!! Her homework words this week were: found, turn, answer, letter, and animal. What??? Those seem like such big words!!! Love it that she's doing so great! Avery had only read this book a couple of times... and listen to how great she does!!! Oliver was killing me with finishing her sentences! He was right most of the time too!

Then Oliver had to have his turn too!!!
