Weekly Update

I had a fun weekend watching my granddaughter, Anna compete in the Youth Rodeo in Gonzales, TX. She rode Friday night and made the finals in Poles, so she rode on Sunday in the Finals. She placed 7 overall in Poles and also did well in 8's and Barrels. One more rodeo to go and then the yearly finals in June. She is doing so well in her first year of competing. After 11 rodeos she is in 27th overall out of 45.
I also made progress on several of my WIPs this week. I stitched on the road trip as my daughter drives. Here is what I stitched on this past week.

Weekly Update

Just when we though Spring was in the air, here comes another blast of cold air. It is raining this morning and on the cool side. Hopefully this will not last long. This has been an exciting week for this grandmother. I was able to see my 8th grader granddaughter off to Washington DC. She and 45 others left Friday for 5 days and will tour many history spots of our USA in Washington DC. She was so excited, what a great event for the young ones. So proud of our Texas kids
I made progress on several of my WIPs this past week.
