This past week we celebrated Ceara’s third birthday. Our friends have a farm and three horses, and Ceara rode two of them: a little brown pony named Brownie (pictured here) and a big black Arabian named Montenegro, or Monte for short. This picture captures the pure joy Ceara has for horses and it reflects the pure joy with which God blessed us through her life.

Ceara LOVES driving by the mustang rescue farm near our house. She asks about them in the morning – even if we don’t drive by the farm, “Horses awake?” and then she answers herself, “horses asleep. In barn. Cold outside. Warm in barn.”
The farm offered pony rides this past Saturday. We brought Ceara and Caleb in order for them to see the horses up-close. As we lifted the kids into the saddle they seemed to have done it 100 times before the way they leaned forward and grabbed on. As we left the farm volunteers allowed Ceara to put carrots and apples in the feed buckets for some of the horses. Ceara hasn’t stopped talking about the trip to the farm – “ride horse, daddy. BIG horse.”
What an awesome time.
