The Rooster is one of those kids who has to sit back and survey a situation, sussing it out, before he will commit to doing something. He didn't crawl until he could do it correctly. He never cruised, he just got up one day and walked across the room. He doesn't dance unless he really, really likes the song and he knows that no-one is watching him.
So, it came as a great surprise today when he was the one to jump up and say he wanted to be first to go horse riding. No careful watching and planning, he simply put on a helmet and up he hopped.
He loved every minute (although he thought it was a little bumpy!). He rode past ducks and goats and a windmill. He was on top of the world. It was one of those times in life when something was done with such little thought and the experience was amazing.
