Today's Activities Include: horse, tree, lunch

Because of the holiday, a lot of people were gone today that might ordinarily have been at the stables. So the woman who runs the stables compresses the lessons for the people who do come. It took me about four days to figure out _why_ T. didn't want to move his lesson from 1:45 p.m. to 12:15 p.m. It involved my regularly scheduled 11 a.m. phone call, our lunch at Applebee's after that and then the horse. Once he understood that I could have the call and end it a little early, go directly to the horse, and have lunch at Applebee's after, and then had a day or so to adjust to that difference, he was completely okay with the revised schedule. Best of all, the woman who runs the stables was okay with us taking the time to work this out with him before committing to him showing up for the lesson (we would have paid anyway, probably). It's nice when everyone can be a little bit patient. It's hard, but it's nice.

R. and A. joined us at Applebee's for lunch. Then we went home so R. could remove his bicycle from the van, then he went out to buy a tree. He got a slightly shorter one this year, which made it easier for A. to help me decorate it. It is very lovely. And we got to unpack all our new ornaments that we bought at WDW this year!
