Every one of my posts say something like "it's been awhile"! I am going to get better at this! It's now October and where has the year gone? Mickey is now home until the end of the year. It is so nice having him around and the kid's are so happy to have their Daddy home.
Hadley started 1st grade this fall at Petrolia and Cooper is in 3K at School for Little People. Hadley had a great 1st six weeks with straight A's. She is learning to read and is getting pretty good at it. Cooper is doing great at counting his numbers. Hadley is still in gymnastics and riding her horse as much as she can. Cooper is now riding Spanky by himself. Spanky even bucked the other evening and Mickey said Cooper laughed the entire time.
Now that it is on to a new rodeo year, Mickey has started practicing twice a week and having a match/jackpot every Sunday afternoon. We had about 6 guys over yesterday to practice and then Dennis fixed fried catfish for all of us for supper. It was delicious and so nice not to have to cook.
