Payday has the sweetest face ever. I love how soft his expression is and his fuzzy little ears. See how he’s got them turned back? He’s listening, pay attention to Martina.

This was a quiet homeschooling day. Martina has done math and reviewed Chapter 12 in her Latin book. She did her science reading and some grammar work. I went to the gym and worked arms, chest and back with Eli. She’s a good workout partner. Once home, we had lunch and then it was time for Miss Sharon to give Martina her riding lesson.

On the suckish side of the equation, my grand-dog, here for a playdate bit Martina just before Miss Sharon’s scheduled arrival.

I treated the leg and had Martina ride my horse instead of her rotten pony today. She completely forgot about her hurt leg once she was outside and playing with the horses. Miss Sharon had fun with Payday because he’s so much more sensitive than Wind. Riding the old guy gave Martina some idea of what Wind can be like, will be like, eventually.
Randall used to ride this same horse when he was 7 or 8!
The freedom to do the things which interest us most is one of the coolest things about homeschooling.
