Last day of school- a mini ride home

So for the last day of school I thought it would be funny to drive Denmark through the school ‘car’ line to pick up the kids.

smallDenmarkI’m still not sure if it was embarrassing for the kids…but Denmark was great and I had fun! lol

Would this have been a success at your house? Do you do something special to mark the beginning and end of the school year for your kids?

    I really enjoy riding Beau the 4 miles to the little resteraunt for breakfast or dinner. The Tourists love it. Byron

    So sweet, a day to remember! Too cool,

    That is very cool…but if two or three friends had wanted to come along, you would have become a “shuttle team!” When I was a kid, my dad and his friends set up a “wagon train” ride during the Nebraska centennial; it was a real blast, especially for a 13 year old kid!

    Oh Stacy- if you only knew how much my daughter would LOVE to be picked up in this manner. She’s almost 6, a kindergartener, and I’m certain she would cry tears of joy if I picked her up with a mini and a cart 🙂 We drove our mini donkey ‘Lily’ with a cart for a while until she had some feet issues and Emily still cherishes the pictures of her in the cart as an 18 month old with Lily in front. You are a GOOD MOMMA!

    That is sooo cute! I don’t have kids of school age but I always had a dream of riding my horse to town!

    That is so fun! What a neat idea….I bet that was special for them.

    Awesome idea! Looked like lots of fun.
    I’ve been studing your tapes. They are very good and sure makes a lot of since.
    Wished I lived close enough to come see you in person.

    So cute! Wish my grandkids went to school closer to where we all live! I never thought about it, but I could ride one of my horses to the bus stop and wait to give them a horseback ride home! They’d love that!

    NEAT! I would of done something like this! So cool! Bet your child was the envy of all!

  12. Susan Phillips on June 5, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    What a great Mom!!!!!
    Love the idea !!!!!

  13. rcatheron on June 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I think it was a brilliant idea, and I’ll bet the kids loved it! My granddaughter would have been ecstatic if I had ever brought her horse to ride home from school 🙂

  14. Juanita on June 5, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    What a super mom! Your kids will remember this forever. Even if they were embarrassed now, when they are adults I bet they tell this story over and over. I would!

    Yes I did, when mine were in grade school, the Oakland “A”s had a mule named Charlie “O”. I had been at his barn for years at least 20 by this time. So my horse and Charlie were waiting for them when they got out to ride home. How exciting.

  16. Heather on June 5, 2013 at 11:48 am

    You can come pick me up anytime with the mini! lol!

  17. Jolene on June 5, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Love it! What a good idea!

  18. Heather on June 5, 2013 at 11:33 am

    that is awesome…what a great idea!

    LOL Stacy – when I saw your title “a mini ride home” in my inbox my first thought was a miniature horse, but I’m horse obsessed!

    Yes my horse obsessed 13 yr old daughter may have loved it, but only if I let her drive! Then she could say she drove home!

  20. Erin Shaw on June 5, 2013 at 11:28 am

    hahahaha! I love it! My boys would have loved it for sure!!!
