Last Friday was the last day of school for my girls. Every year the last day is a field day of sorts. They have bouncers, games, snacks, and hot dogs for lunch. Last year's theme was Boot Camp and they had camo t-shirts for the kids, army style obstacle courses, and all sorts of military style fun. This year the theme was Rodeo, which is perfect considering the school is surrounded by acres of ranch land.
I roped WB into taking the day off and he was asked to drive the tractor for the hayride. They asked if he could drive a tractor and I laughed, because we all know about WB and his tractor.
Anyway, he was perfectly content driving around the middle school track all morning with kids in tow. He entertained each group with exclamations like, "In the case of a water emergency your seats can be used as a floatation device" or "We will be traveling at a top speed of 4 miles per hour today". Little One, my friend KK and I were assigned to keep the rowdies in control during the rides. Needless to say, I still have hay marks on my legs.
Em and Little One
a famous cowboy from Texas Tech, came to entertain the kids with Crossfire his horse. And later his dog Sooner came in for some fun. The kids were mesmerized. All day kids kept asking WB if he was that guy on the horse. All guys in cowboy hats and a pair of starched Wranglers must look the same, I guess.
Everyone had a wonderful day. It was just the right way to end the school year and our time at public school for now. It was full of good memories and lots of fun. Oh, and it was just the excuse I needed to buy myself a new hat.
