Meet our little cowboy Joey. Ain't he cute?
I made these cards for Joey's birthday this year. For the second year in a row in lieu of a party and presents we asked family and friends to make a donation to SMILE in honor of Joey's 5th Birthday. SMILE is the name of the wonderful program where Joey participates in horseback riding therapy. The inside of the cards look like this:
Because of the generosity of our family and close friends, we were able to raise almost $250 to donate to SMILE this year. Thank you everybody ~ that is awesome! You can be very proud of yourselves! On Wednesday, Joey begins his 3rd season of equine therapy. We are so excited! He has really come to enjoy his sessions and it helps him gain strength and balance. Every week from now til October, we are off to ride Sparky! I encourage everyone to find out if you have an equine therapy program in your area. It will do wonders for your child and he or she will have fun at the same time!
Here are some pictures I threw in from his final session last October...
