Scarecrows and Rodeos

We are all excited about the slight drop in temperature. I am so enjoying sitting here with the windows open. I love Fall and all things Fall related, for example scarecrows. Friday afternoon we had our first 4-H meeting of the new year and worked on our scarecrow in honor of National 4-H week. By Monday the courthouse lawn will be adorned with scarecrows of all different sizes and genres. Our club the "Buckaroos" opted for a traditional, western attire scarecrow and the kids had a blast creating it.

Today was the final rodeo in the Crossbrand Cowboy Church's Kids Ranch Rodeo Series. This is the kids 3rd year competing and what a blessing it has been. Godly men and women coming together to not only help the kids showcase their skills but minister to them on their level, as well. This is Riley's first year in the big kid events, so he is learning a lot about being humble and the satisfaction of trying your hardest even when you don't bring home the buckle. He loves every minute of it. Ansley opted not to compete this year but still enjoys the company of her friends and cheering on the boys. We can't wait for next year!
