Rodeo Day and Open House

It was Rodeo Day at school. So we got dressed in our cowboy/cowgirl garb and got ready for a fun day.

Preston is on his way to play some country games.

Preston was riding his stick horse around the barrels.

He's patiently waiting for a pony ride.

Yee Haw!

Meanwhile, I led the kids in special country music at our Campfire Sing-Along. We sang "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain", "Skip To My Lou", "Old McDonald", "Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me", etc. It was fun and the kids enjoyed having music outside. However, I danced in boots and my feet were hurting by the end of the day.

But, we still had a special night ahead with Kaitlyn. It was time for her 1st grade Open House. She had this letter waiting for us on her desk. It says:
Dear mom and dad,
Thank you for coming to Open House tonight. I am going
to be good tonight. We love you very much.
Love, Kaitlyn
We had to send a long sleeved shirt to school. The kids drew a picture of their face and traced their hands. Then they stuck the head and hands in the shirt so it looked like they were sitting at the desk.

Kaitlyn had all these different projects on her desk for us to look at. She is such a great student and does awesome schoolwork.

Hanging outside the classroom were silhouettes of each child. Another parent and I traced the children's silhouettes last week and someone else cut them out. They turned out great!

It was a very fun, but tiring day. Craig and I were in bed by 10:30 pm which is unusual for us. Thank goodness we are now on Spring Break!
