There are a million reasons I am grateful for the "village" (or caregivers, loved ones, family, etc) that we have. One of the big reasons I am grateful is because all these awesome people teach our kids things that we can't. Or won't. Or just would never think of.
Horses are a great example.
Julie, Andy and Sadie are so lucky that their Grammy and Pop-pop are genuine cowpoke who teach them how to ride, be safe, and care for a horse.
Julie and Andy have come such a long way in their riding. When I came to get them last week, Julie was so excited to tell me she had rode Lady all by herself. And even directed her using the reigns!
