What a great week I have had. My granddaughter, Anna(14) competed in her first big rodeo. She rode in the Youth Rodeo finals in Gonzales, TX. She finished 6th for the year in Pole Bending and won her first buckle. There were over 200 young people riding in the rodeo. She has only been riding a little over 2 years. She also got to carry the American flag in one of the Grand Entry parades, a great honor. Here are my favorite pictures. It was so much fun to watch all the young girls and boys compete. Of I had to have a picture with Anna.
 A very proud MOM

I also got a little stitching done too. Here is my progress on WIPs for the week.

Congrats to your granddaughter! What an honor to carry the flag. I used to do a little barrel racing myself and its always good to see the youngsters doing it! Your progress is looking great on everything. Red Birds is going to be beautiful when its done.

Para serte franca no me gusta el rodeo, pero si me han gustado mucho tus bordados y tu blog.
