My Horses

We have horses again! The black horse is Sadie and the palomino horse is Star. My children love them as much as I do. They have fun riding. I enjoy going for rides and training my horses. We bought them two years ago and hopefully I'll get a chance to blog more about the progress I've had with training them.

Home School ~ Learning ABC

So here I am trying to find time to blog again...I've started a new adventure since the last time I wrote anything on here...I'm now home schooling my 5 year old son in Pre-K and I'm really enjoying it. Colton loves to learn but his attention span is very short, so I have to come up with fun and creative ways for him to learn. I've been trying to teach him letters and numbers.  I've seen these dot art letters on pinterest and finally bought some dot art markers. Colton loves doing them! It's perfect for him.
