Thankful for this girl!

Thankful for this little Indian!


We are thankful!  Thankful for our family, our health, our friends, our school...the list goes on and on.  We are so proud of the kids.  Sadie competed in a lamb jackpot a few weekends ago--she walked away with reserve grand champion and champion junior showmanship.  (I even pulled the gooseneck trailer to Happy and back home without incident.)  Sadie competed in UIL last week.  She worked very hard on all of her events.  She was on the second place Art Smart team, 1st place calculator team, and 2nd place listening skills team.  As an individual, she was 2nd in calculator and 4th in listening.

T.S. was very brave and participated in UIL storytelling.  Although he didn't place, we were proud of his effort and commitment.  As you can see, he was an Indian at the annual Thanksgiving feast at school.  Notice "SWAT" on the back of his vest--we are thankful for his creativity. 

Take time to count your blessings.  Happy Thanksgiving from the Bows!

Science project

Sadie finished her science project--they were to build a model of something that couldn't fit into the classroom.  She chose a hot air balloon.  The paper-mache portion took longer than expected, but she finally finished it, and we thought it turned out quite well.  (I think the passenger is a great finishing touch!)
