Piper Kate is back from Michigan and doing great. She started 4th grade, which seems to be alot like 3rd grade (same teacher even....perks of a super small school) only with more 'tude. She was in the Junior Rodeo this weekend and did a great job!! Being that she didnt get any riding time in this summer and only 4 days worth before the rodeo, Im ridiculously proud of her!!!

My middle child...oh where to begin with him....well, he is almost 2...that about sums it all up. His brother is his current favorite toy, aside from anything that he can climb, thats really his favorite thing to do. He recently got his first ride in by himself on my mother in law's pony and he is now addicted to the horses. Maybe worse then his sister. And his mom. He wont go anywhere without his "wope" or his "at" and has added several words to his dictionary...such as "wope" (rope) and "hat" He has said a few sentences..today it was "there is horsey" and yesterday "did you see that?" He may be a 2 year old monster but he is also the sweetest little boy, your heart cant help but melt when he smiles at you.
|If that face doesnt scream "2 year old" I dont know what does.|
|Yes, he is out in public in nuthin' but a diaper....what can I say, small town USA.|
|Wopin' and Widin' his horsey|
|This is how he chills at the rodeo|
My kiddos are my life....they are each a gift from God and such individual packages of fun and excitement...well, not always fun but always exciting. I look forward to watching them grow and their next adventures....as long as it doenst involve hospital trips or permanment scars, we will be good to go!
