The boys have been so patient these past few months helping us with the girls. We decided they needed a night out to themselves. They both have been hounding me the past few weeks about Mutton Bustin. We signed them up, and last night away we went to the Strawberry Day's rodeo. Natalie's school teach (Mrs. Bromley) was so good to come over and watch the girls while we spent a couple hours with the boys. They both performed much better than I had anticipated, and Matthew did well enough to take home first place. However, they sure did get an education on the difference between riding on Dad's back and then riding on something that wants nothing to do with you. I told Matthew to not let go, and that's exactly what he did. He brought the sheep down with him.....and then over him. His shoulder was a little jammed up, but its nothing a little dirt can 't heal. Congrats Matthew and Blair, you're real cowboys.
This is right after.....the agony of victory
