Fifth Grade Talent Show - Brailey

So many exciting things are happening at the end of the fifth grade. For starters, this week, they had orientation at Monroe Middle School for parents - last week was for the kids, and Brailey is very excited to be in middle school next year. I wasn't able to attend, because Brailey and I had a mandatory 4-H Record Book Check that we had to be at in Albany. But of course I picked up my packet from the office at the school, and although I held it together while I was inside the building, as soon as I got to my car, the tears came! Yes, I know, Big Mama doesn't cry. Hardly ever! But I can hardly bear the thought of her going to such a big school and not being at Buena Vista any longer. It took me the rest of the day and night to get over my sadness. 
On a much happier note, though, they had the Fifth Grade Talent Show, and Brailey demonstrated her roping skills, which she has been working very hard on. It was a big hit and she caught the roping dummy all three times! Then she asked the principal, Sr. Cuadros, to come up and try it. She did this to prove that it isn't as easy as it looks. All the fifth graders who participated in the show did  a great job, and it was a lot of fun! It isn't easy to get up in front of parents and siblings and classmates to perform! Brady and I were super, super proud of our Shaye-Shaye, especially Brady, who has been working with her and helping her perfect her loop. Next is learning how to do it on her horse and roping a live animal - she's ready! I was thrilled we all got to be there (even Britt, who we pulled out of class and who was more proud than even Brady and I were)! Brady busted his chops to get from his stores to the show, but he made it! And a good time was had by all...
