The boys and I have been working on our bucket list. Little by little we are crossing things off our list. One of which was to attend a Rodeo. We have taught the boys that you do what the locals do wherever you move. This is one of the things that the locals do in Kansas. What I didn’t expect was the profound effect it would have on my youngest. What I witnessed was amazing. It was the first time in weeks my boys smiled real true smiles. They are so missing daddy. For a few hours they were able to keep their minds off the fact that Daddy was not with them.
Nathan loved the roping and the riding of the horse. Blake just enjoyed it. Nathan now has me looking for riding lessons. The pure joy on his face. I love it. My heart was filled this day. For those few hours my boys were happy again. Here are some photos of that day.
The ropers were amazing and so willing to teach the kids. They taught Nate to keep trying. Loved this.
It was a great day for all. Thank you to all who made it special for the kids.
