There are lake rats, gym rats......we are just feedyard rats. These kids don't have much of a chance. As a family we accomplish lots of things at the feedyard. Riley ropes or rides horses, the kids play in the sand or ride or help feed cattle, and I am a spectator or sometimes I squeeze in a run.
This is going to be the first summer that both kids will be big enough to be content playing and not need to be held, etc.
I should also clarify "feedyard". We really only hold about 4,000 head and don't feed cattle out. It's still a feedyard to us.
Reno has since gotten a hair cut. I like it both ways, long and short. The problem is that he just doesn't like haircuts a bit.
Scout.....well, Scout is into dressing herself. It almost always includes a long sleeve shirt and leggings. The leggings thing is that she must have tight pants (like jockeys or jumpers). This means that she never, seriously never matches. I never understood parents that let their kids dress themselves. Ok, so maybe I shouldn't have been so hard on those people.
Now the story is that she wants to be a jumper. I don't think she has dropped the jockey thing all together, just not quite as high on it as she was.
