So the girls started school at SAT in Hondo and when we went to visit, Ava told everyone when she walked in the door, "My mom said if I don't like it I don't have to stay." I guess we both need security blankets. BUT the girls in this little class must not have heard what she said because they grabbed her by the hands and swept her up in their game and within 5 minutes I did not exist anymore. And from that day forward I knew that our decisions were right and that this change was good.
Which brings me to today. The San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo just came to an end in San Antonio and in celebration of the event, Ava's class hosted a rodeo of their own. Ava has been practicing rodeo songs each day for a month in preparation for this day, she picked out her clothes that she would wear (do ya think they resemble the Halloween post?), and she has been telling us about spurs and horses and barrels and all things rodeo each and every chance she gets. So the day came and boy was it cute; and so so special.
Ava got to be the Texas Flag Bearer - what a wonderful role to have don't you think....
Some pole running...
And the clowns were on standby to help if needed during the rodeo
My sweet little Rodeo Cowgirl!
And if you are wondering about Alex...well she is just the sweetest, love bug you have ever met
and the biggest mess you will find.
but moving in stride with the changes and the craziness
