Rodeo Day

Dictated by Cavett:
Rodeo day at school was cool. We took a picture. My favorite thing was riding my horsy (stick horse) and milking the cow. It was a pretend cow. We read Mason's book Armadilla Rodeo. We branded a bull with oil. We searched for treasure (panned for gold) and then had a water ladel race.
I touched a shot rattlesnake (just the skin.) Mr. Templin shot the snake with a gun.
I learned that the Texas state flower is the bluebonnet. If you pick a bluebonnet, the policeman will buy you a ticket and if you are riding fast. The Texas state bird is the mockingbird. It's also Jeffery's team name. Daddy told me that the armadilla is the state speed bump.

Sounds like a fun day...I read the book, Armadillo Rodeo, to my son's class last fall! It's a good one! Your daddy is super funny! I like your picture, too!
