Hungarian style...

Our retreat in Hungary was really a great time of encouragement for us. We love getting to hang out with others who are in WHM and hear about how God is working throughout the world.

Part of "retreating" includes just finding fun things to do with the family. Our hotel offered riding lessons, so Abby could hardly wait. Now, of course my version of a riding lesson would be talking a slow walk on a trail or being lead in a circle inside the stable.

Fortunately,
there was a language barrier (this is one time it was a good thing) and I had no idea what these lessons would include...because I probably would not have let her go if I had know she was going to do this...


and this...
and this...
and THIS...

Thankfully, all ended well.

i love these pictures. abby has a wonderful gift. i rode for many years and can't tell you how unusual it is to see a girl her age completely at ease on a horse. what a fantastic experience...and europeans know what they are doing with horses- they always win all the olympics :)

Awesome. How many girls get to do THAT??! I guess just this once I'll say I'm happy for the language barrier:)
