Well…that was a different day.
Tim had a meeting with the Bishop that conveniently coincided location and time with the little one’s riding lesson. We then had a little wait afterwards while Tim finished his meeting with the Bishop and three of the children bounced around in the Cathedral grave yard. It was a very promising meeting about the relationship that is developing between our (AoG) church and the Church in Wales. The Bishop comes to preach at our church next month! Very exciting!!
The eldest, meanwhile, had been spending an afternoon helping at the farm and tells me he helped with the milking and got to lift a bale with the tractor. He was very excited.
The youngest has her riding lessons regularly on a Tuesday and her normal instructor is on honeymoon at the moment, so she had someone else, today. Her instructor, today, encouraged her to canter around the entire ménage instead of half of it. She did it without hesitating and without holding onto her saddle. She looked so tiny, but so confident. Her pony loved it too! It was exciting to watch her go.
A close friend finished full time work, today, to embark on the exciting adventure of home educating their gorgeous family. I’m very excited for them and sharing in the joy of the moment. We have tea and cakes planned for tomorrow afternoon, to celebrate, hopefully with another home educating family.
And most exciting…on the journey home Tim had a call from the travel agent and together they confirmed and booked our flights to Kaapstad. VERY EXCITING!!!! I still can’t quite get my head around it!
