Conditions were perfect. But then NO teacher and NO horse. Not so perfect. The teacher failed to mention last week that they would be closed for Spring Break this week. (And I only figured it out after calling to listen to the recorded message). Would have been a good piece of information to let us in on before we went through the trouble of attending, don't ya think??
Clayton didn't find all the time a waste. He held himself in this position for at least ten minutes which is a major feat for Clayton! (Guess he decided to work on his trunk muscles without the horse!) And of course he found the time to turn and watch the cars pass on the highway. So not a completely wasted trip . . .
But I will say that I did have a small rant in my head about "government" schools. It irks me to no end that society's "schedule" is basically ruled by the schools' schedule. Maybe some of us don't want to go by that calendar and think the third week in March is a perfectly good time to go horseback riding.
Just a small climb up on the homeschooling soapbox . . .
