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.
