since I’m only a YEAR or so behind! ;-) Maybe these pictures from the summer will bring some warmth during these cold winter months!
These were taken at the Children’s Rodeo at the Bar Fifty Ranch down the road this last September. It was held to benefit the St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Looking back, it was a crazy day but so worth the experience and memories! A few things I’ll never forget: feeling so proud of the kids’ performances, waiting around, Danielle constantly crying if she wasn’t on one of the horses BY HERSELF, waiting around, enjoying Abby’s confidence on the horse and Jadon’s new-found confidence in himself, waiting around, feeling pressure because company was arriving at our house any minute, waiting around, feeling a little jipped on the ‘official’ placement of their performances (I’m sure that was a Mom thing), waiting around, and then going home to fix a big meal that I totally wasn’t prepared for and should have forgone for the beans and cornbread idea!! ;-) Whew, what a day! BUT so worth every minute of it (even the waiting around)!
