Family Ritual

This is our most recent scrap challenge--to document a family ritual. Almost every day we walk down the road to see the horses. Aliza chatters the whole way, helps push Josiah in the stroller and anxiously looks for the black dog to chase and pet. When we get to the farm she climbs up on the fence to look for the horses. Often the horses are in the barn or in the back field where she can't see them, but it doesn't matter to her. When she is ready she usually sprints home. The road is perfect since it is a dead end road with almost no traffic and those who do live on the road are very familiar with our little family ritual. If they haven't seen us, they have probably heard us! (Too bad you can barely see her little ponytail in the picture!)
