Lots of people tell me they want to adopt an infant because they don't want to miss their child's "firsts". I often say, my kids' "firsts" are more fun to watch because they are truly appreciate the experience. Today was no different as Mickey not only got to pet his first horse, but also got to take his first horse ride. Some of my clients invited the kids out to ride and since Mom needed to do their 6 month post placement visit for their daughter Chelsea (Russia), we made it a family excursion.

Chelsea finally got a ride after waiting for all the big kids to go
Mickey got bored waiting for while the other kids rode so decided to give mom a new do. This kid is crazy good at braiding.
