Keira's Horse Riding 2012

After, trying many, MANY different activities for this kid and to have all of them turn out to not go well.  Let's recap, shall we... we have tried gymnastics (she hated being touched/spotted by the instructors, so she did a lot of screaming), there was dance (that worked for a bit, then she got sick of it, not to mention, this kid does NOT perform, she is the kid that everyone is laughing at, because she is doing her own thing), there was Soccer (wow, this one was the most exhausting!  She wouldn't stay out on the field for more then 30 seconds at a time, she would sit down in the middle of the field, scream when other kids had the ball, etc.)  There was also the time we let her do the play with Nyah, (oh my gosh, I have not laughed that hard in such a long time, do you remember me saying she does NOT perform, yep she was doing all sorts of things to attract attention to herself, the whole audience was laughing at her, and we heard people talking about her "special performance" afterwards and how funny it was, the even funnier part is, she doesn't even realize the attention she draws to herself.  In the car on the way home as we were laughing about it, she looked at us and said, "why are you laughing at me?")  So, after several tries and fails, I think we have finally found something that works out great!  Horse riding!  She loves it!  They have other animals at the barn were she goes and she can tell you the names of all the different animals, she still can't remember the name of her trainer though.  She is doing really well, and that makes me happy!
