Summer Blog Week 2

Monday 3rd July (Jame’s birthday 🎉)

Today we woke up at 7:40 a.m. After getting dressed, we had our breakfast. We went to the stables around 9:00 a.m. We each brushed one or two horses. The first riding lesson started by the first group that was composed of Anais who rode Rubix, Chiara who rode Rory and Julia who rode Swing. During this lesson, the other group took back the last horses who were in the paddock (Alf, George and Archie). Then the second group got ready for their riding lesson and went to the area. There were Ella who rode Swing, Appoline who rode Rubix and Andrea who rode Goerge. During this lesson, the other girls and Jame washed the saddles and the bridles. Then Jame rode Brooke in the round.

We all got back to the house to eat lunch, we ate sandwiches and croques monsieurs. We had free time before the English lesson : we revised some verbs at different times. At the end we did crosswords. After, we took the car to go to the lake which was very nice with slides. We stayed there for two hours. Then we went back home and took our showers and had dinner. We ate pasta with bolognese and cheese. Right now, we do the blog of the day. Good night 🙂 🙂 !
