Another early February day that felt like spring - Brailey was able to ride in her tee shirt. I really wish this weather would have stayed a lot longer...
Most of February was spent watching Britt play basketball. He was so happy to see the two faces in the picture below, his best buddies from Monroe Middle School. They surprised him and came to one of his home games. How sweet is that? It meant a lot to our entire family, to tell you the truth.
Unlce Boone and Aunt Cindy came to this game, as well.
He had to wear tape on his wrist for a few weeks. He and his coach had a system down for getting this done.
Meanwhile, Brailey enjoyed riding her horses! She and Mater have such a connection. He is just a love of a horse! He truly enjoys all the attention she gives him. See how nice the weather was? It was the February Fake Out on weather. Just when we got used to it, wham! Winter came back in full force.
Ironically, Britt was put on the Catholic school team. Almost all of these boys go to the private Catholic schools in Eugene and will attend the private Catholic high school. We are so grateful he was moved to this team! It is the perfect fit for him, in more ways than one. God is so good!
While we were "hooping" it up and basketballing the weekend away, Brady was working the weekend away with his Nocona Boots boss from Texas, Mr. Chris Stein, at the St. Paul Rodeo grounds. Check out the awesome boots the rodeo committee has custom ordered! Are they so cool? There are five different boot styles, and they had a fitting for everyone to try them on. Talk about exhausting! Poor Brady is still tired from this very long weekend, but he loved all the people he met and any time he gets to hang out with Chris is his favorite time. Sales reppin' is fun, but not for the feint of heart, let me tell you. It is hard work!
Remember that little daffodil from last month's post that was popping up? It has been through hell, but it still managed to bloom. Daffodils are one of the most inspirational flowers on earth, aren't they? They give a whole new meaning to the phrase "bloom where you're planted."
