Well after freezin our behinds off for three days, the San Antonio show is over. The kids had a blast here, other than all the waiting, but that's to be expected with a show this size.

They got a red ribbon on their trailer. It almost looked like a trailer dealership in there, there were so many gooseneck flatbeds. But they did an exellent job on it.
The judges grouped them in the "Big School" catagory because they had 5 or more entries. lol (our school k-12 has 150 kids) anyway, they got 5th in showmanship overall. Woo Hooo...Now we're on our way to San Angelo show tomorrow!!!!!!

The kids did great; they sure have a lot more opportunity than we did at their age and they seem to be putting it to excellent use!! Congratulations!

Y'all worked very hard and did very well. Great job. Thanks for the pictorial documentary of your adventures. It looked to be a nifty trip of which memories are made.

The kids did real well and looks like they had lots of fun.Drinking out of the bowl reminds me of a few years ago I was girl guide leader,we had a winter campout and made ice cream sundaes in a wallpaper trough.....the idea being they got down on knees eating the sudaes out of like a pig trough...EGGG the most disgusting thing I ever did,half the girls had runny noses,lets leave it at that! Not one of my more memorable moments as leader!!!
