Weekly Update

Another busy with family, work and life in general. Enjoying watching my granddaughter play volleyball and ride in her rodeos. She is doing great in the Youth Rodeo Association. We went to Bellville, TX (an hour from our house) on Friday night. She competed in 4 events(poles, 8's, barrels and goat tying. She placed 7th in poles and 8th in 8's. After two weeks, she is in 23th place of out 39 13-15 girls in all around events. Enjoy watching her ride. I also stitched and made some progress on some of my WIPs. I am putting my Samplings book together and also finishing the Southwest Season-August ornament into a flat ornament. Here are my pictures:
