Early summer is time for many family and college class reunions. In this photo, two friends reunite after several years and an entire ocean apart! One of my former lesson students, who now lives in Germany, graduated this spring and came over to visit for a couple of weeks. In addition to reconnecting with her old buddy Henry, she's enjoyed a little local history and hospitality with me - music at Walton Park, lunch at Earlyhouse, the house and garden tour at Monticello - so we've been busy with fun excursions from the farm. She's also been a BIG help with new beginner riders through the Parks & Rec program, and she'll be jumping in to work with a group of Girl Scouts arriving next week. We're hoping for an opportunity to ride at Montpelier this weekend . . . I'll be sure to post photos next time if we do.
