Catching Up Again!

We went to a Lush workshop at Home Ed group - Hannah really enjoyed it and made a bath bomb and a bubble bar.

She has had two riding lessons, a hack out with her best friend, and a day with Cracker.

She has been trampolining again at Flip Out and had another friend over for a study date followed by crafting and a trip to the park, and she has also had a ballet lesson.

The fox is still visiting us each day, and amusingly she is afraid of the kitten! It doesn't stop her coming for her dinner though, as long as the kitten is the other side of the window.

Finally, Lily is looking very grown up now. She will be 5 months old on Sunday.

Loan Pony Day

Hannah had Cracker today, and it was such a lovely sunny spring day 😊.
After the field was done Hannah got Cracker in and groomed him ready to ride. She rode out with Cracker's owner (who rode one of her other horse) and a friend, and had a really nice time, he is such a lovely pony.

Riding - A Lesson and A Hack

Hannah has already ridden twice this week. Yesterday she had a lesson with her friends, and today she went out for a hack on her own. She hadn't hacked out for ages and was looking forward to it. Her riding instructor accompanied her on foot to manage the traffic, and make sure Hannah stayed safe, (I love that she does this, I would hate her to ride out alone), and Hannah had a lovely time.

Sustainability Centre

On Sunday Hannah and I joined some friends for a rainy walk at the Sustainability Centre. It was lovely to be out despite the weather, and nice to have a catch up with friends. Hannah took lots of pictures, most of these are hers 😊

The last two Weeks

Busy, busy couple of weeks for Hannah!

Last week was half term, so we had lots of play dates. Our friends came over from Pulborough for a day. It was lovely to see them and the girls had a brilliant time with the American Girl dolls. They also have ponies, so there was lots of horse talk between the girls.
Then some more friends came over for a catch up, and we made plans for Hannah and her friend Melissa to do some studying together as both girls were keen.
Hannah also rode on Tuesday

and spent Saturday at the stables as usual.
A really blurry picture, but I love it!

During last week I mentioned to a friend that we were looking for a part loan pony, and she offered Hannah the pony Hannah used to ride when she was 5! So, on Monday we went over to visit and Hannah helped out in the yard and reunited with Cracker and his friends.

Bringing Alfie in from the field

On Tuesday Hannah was back at the stables for a riding lesson,

and then yesterday her friend Faye came over. They had so much fun playing on the Wii, and catching up - they hadn't seen each other for ages and really made up for lost time!

Today Hannah and Melissa had a study morning,

and then we all went to Flipout for home ed trampolining. Lots of our other friends were there as well, and Hannah loved it.

Finally, our kitten has become a tiny little cat - she is such a lovely little cat too 😊.
