It was his first cattle show and little sister also tried her hand in the show ring, too.
She is his "right hand" helper, and little brother is following suit.
The days were hot.
Sweltering 105 degree days where Mama had to just find a shady spot to stay upright.
Heat and I don't get along!
But Dad and the kids just plowed through.
Grooming and clipping.
Getting in the ring with the steers.
In the end, one of the steers decided he was done, and refused to cooperate.
I was so proud of my kids for sticking with it and finishing with a smile.
Because sometimes, that's the way it goes.
You have trials, you stick with it, and in the end you make it through with integrity and you are better for it.
Summer is flying by.
A fleeting run of sunshine and memories.
A part of me is ready for cooler weather and the Autumn colors.
How about you?
Wishing you a lovely day!
