I've already blogged a bit about life when I was 7, with pictures from the old farmhouse we lived in at the time.
When I was 7 my horse-craziness reached new peaks. I had been begging to learn to ride for ages already. My parents purchase a little appaloosa pony named Shorty (who, incidentally, we could never catch) and signed me up for riding lessons.
It was when I was 7 that I met my best friend, a girl who loved horses as much as I. Mary Jo had a dark bay mare, and her horse, unlike ours, could actually be caught.
We also participated in Girl Scouts together (and I have a picture of the two of us in Girl Scouts, but wasn't able to track it down). I remember sleepovers and watching The Black Stallion and exploring old farm buildings. With plenty of land to roam, there were always adventures to be found, like tadpoles in the far back pond.
If you'd like to participate in Memory Lane Friday, just add your website to the linky. Don't forget to comment on other particpants' blogs as you go! Next week's topic is 3rd grade.
