Nonetheless, I've taken some time to spend with the kids. I let them get an early dismissal on Tuesday, and I took them to the rodeo. Chuck was supposed to go with us, but he had to work, as usual. The kids are used to it, so we are not really surprised when he has to skip family events anymore, even though it still makes me a little sad.
We had fun anyway, so that's what matters! They loved getting dressed up and I got hats (cheap ones) for all of them. Today is western day at school too. I should have taken a picture. Instead you'll have to just be happy with these two from Tuesday's rodeo trip.
We had great seats - just three rows behind the VIP box and the rodeo announcer and judges! We were up on the second level, but one bucking bronco was able to kick dirt all the way up onto us! It hit Luke and Evie both in the face and me on the arm. I couldn't help cracking up! Then the people in front of us were on the Kiss Cam. And even though the place was pretty much empty, I still saw 4 people we know - one of whom is an occasional reader of this blog! What a fun day!
