Wordy Wednesday: My Little Cowboys – Frugal Novice

Wordy Wednesday: My Little Cowboys

Yesterday at the boys’ school they had the chance to ride horses – this is something the school does every year and the kids all LOVE it! J rode one last year, but this was C’s first experience with it.

J’s class was first – I arrived just in time to see him climb on to the horse, and he loved every minute of it!

When C’s class came outside, he yelled, “Horsies!” and I was sure he was going to love the experience just as much as his big brother did.

Nope, not so much. He didn’t want to get on, or even touch, the horse. We settled on sitting together to watch the other kids take their turns – he really wanted to run around, but was stuck sitting there with me. Perfect photo op, right?

You can just see the joy on his face. :)

All in all, though, it was a really fun morning with my little cowboys!

    They LOOK totally adorale in their “cowboy” outfits.
    J looks just like a pro up there on that horse, glad he had so much fun.
    Maybe C will do better next time, horses are really HUGE!!
    Great photo of the two of you, however.
    I love horseback riding, wish I could go again, but not since my spinal surgeries…. oh well.
    Have a great week.

      We have a local consignment sale twice a year and I found both pairs for about $8 total! I had figured we’d just use them occasionally for dress-up but the boys absolutely LOVE them!
