Pony club

Hoy tuvimos una linda nueva experiencia. A las 8 de la manana salimos de casa para ir a una nueva actividad. Empezaba a las 9 y llegamos con dos minutos de anticipacion. Tim fue a un establo a participar de un club de ponis. Desde que llegamos estaba emocionadisimo, fuimos a la oficina y le dieron su casco y nos dijeron que vayamos con los demas ninos.

Hoy aprendio un poco a limpiar los establos, a limpiar los caballos y tuvo una oportunidad de montar a caballo. Estaba feliz! Estuvimos ahi de 9 a 11am y el tiempo paso rapidamente. Regresamos a casa de los abuelos y no paro de hablar, de contarles lo que hizo y lo mucho que se divirtio. Al terminar de contarles me miro y pidio regresar a ver los caballos. Jejeje...

Cada dos semanas tendra la oportunidad de visitar los establos y pasar tiempo con los caballos e ir aprendiendo un poco mas acerca de ellos. Estoy feliz porque pude quedarme con el y ver lo bien que estaba respondiendo a las instrucciones que se les daba a todos los ninos, pude ver lo tranquilo que estaba en un grupo de ninos que nunca habia visto y que eran mucho mayores que el (Tim solo tiene 4 anos y muchas de las ninas tenian mas de 8 anos - si, todas eran ninas jejeje), pude ver como las personas que trabajan con el grupo pueden captar la atencion de mi chiquito y como crean oportunidades de aprendizaje para todos los ninos, sin descuidar a mi enano.

La proxima vez lo dejare y esperare en el carro, pues quiero que vaya creando la independencia que tanto necesita trabajar. No me ire muy lejos, solo estare en el carro, pues tampoco puedo soltarlo asi nomas. Soy mama al final de cuenta y mama loca a veces jejejeje....

Today we had a lovely new experience. At 8am we left home to participate of a new activity. It started at 9 and we managed to be there with a couple of minutes to spare. Tim went to a pony club. Ever since we arrived he was very excited. We booked ourselves in and he got his helmet and we were told to join the other children.

Today he learned to clean the stables, groom the ponies, and had the chance to ride a pony for a while in a group lesson. He was thrilled! We were there from 9 to 11 and the time flew. We went back to grandparents house where he couldn't stop himself from telling them about his day and new experience. Once he finished telling them about today he asked me to take him back. Hehehe...

Every other saturday he will have the chance to to visit the horses and spend time with the horses and learn little bits more of how to look after them. I am so happy I had the chance to stay with him and see how well he was coping with instructions that were given to all the children, I could see how he coped with a new group of children he had never seen before and that were that much older than him (Tim is only four and many of the girls were 8 and older - yeah, girls, he was the only boy hehehe lucky boy!), I could see how the people in charge of the group dealt with the children and my son's needs. They managed to keep him engaged!

Next time I will drop him off and wait in the car as I want him to become more independent. I won't be far, I will be sitting in the car, I can't just leave him! I am his mummy at the end of the day and I can be a bit OTT hehehehe,....
