Hatch House Montessori

While we know it isn’t much like Christmas, we enjoyed that the weather held on the morning of Dec. 16th.  We had 70+ little riders from the Hatch House Montessori school to get their christmas tree and pony rides.  Nobody froze and the kids were really good.  The wee ones are so darn cute!
