On the heels of my post a few days ago, I can report that Lorna is no longer the isolated homeschooler! Today she started horseback riding lessons in the hopes that she will gain confidence with her own horse.
I am very excited about this opportunity that she has been given. She has a job watering the neighbors flowers which pays her almost enough for one lesson a month. Her grandparents have all offered to help out with the expenses so that she can have 2 lessons a month. Thank you grandparents!
The instructor is a very nice younger woman with loads of experience. Since the lessons are private she can adapt to what Lorna needs and work with her strengths. By the end of the lesson today she had Lorna riding with her hands raised and eyes closed, which is a major accomplishment!
