Weekly Update

Busy week with family. Friday I went to Edna, TX about 1-1/2 from my house, to watch my Granddaughter compete in her first big rodeo with the Youth Rodeo Association. There were over 600 events. Anna competed in four events, Poles, figure 8's, Barrels and goat tying. She did very well as she has only been riding a year and she is competing against others that have been riding years. She will be riding in rodeos on Fridays and Saturdays for the next year in this youth group. She made 9th out of 23 in Jr. Poles, 15th out of 29 in Jr. goat tying, 14th out of 20 in Jr. 8's, and 24th out of 29 in Jr. Barrels. Then on Saturday, she played in her first volleyball tourney of the year. She is on the 8th grade B Team at her Briscoe Junior High school. Her team took third grade. Of course her Grandmother is really proud of her.
