#horseshowsissy is Now 8 and Momma's Got the Pre-World Jitters

It's about 24 hours until Shelby and I head to Tulsa, Oklahoma for Shelby's 2nd Pinto World Championship horse show.  Shelby will begin showing on Friday, June 16 through June 22. She is in 17 classes! She and Hershey are showing in the Youth Walk/Trot classes and the Youth Novice Walk/Trot classes. This year she is adding some new events! She is showing English Showmanship, Ideal Pinto and the speed classes (Keyhole race, Barrel Race, Stake Race, and Pole Bending!)! This momma is NERVOUS.... Shelby on the other hand is cool as a cucumber! I would rather it be that way!

She is an amazing now 8 year old! She will have a celebration at PtHA World on Sunday as well as celebrate Father's Day. She had a fun time at Cornerstone with her friends too on her actual birthday. We took her out to eat for dinner w/ just us and she enjoyed getting a new My Life Doll and some other toys she enjoys. What an amazing girl she is.
Shelby's Trail shirt and vest got an upgrade too. After all, it is the World show... go big or go home!

 A pre-World mani/pedi is a must....

 How did she grow from this tiny little bundle to this long-legged, fearless, strong, beautiful, caring and breathtaking, young lady??

She's 8!!!

Last day of 2nd Grade

Shelby and Rhett had their last day of school and 1st day of summer! I can't believe Shelby is finished w/ 2nd Grade! :( Rhett will start "Pre-Pre-K" in August where shelby goes to after school care. I'm sad he'll be leaving Miss Liz but it's time. I remember these feelings when Shelby stopped goin to Miss Minna and started at a preschool. Kids growing up sucks!!!!
Shelby had the best teacher ever this year and we are so so thankful for Mrs. Wooley and all she did for our Shelby. She is going to have her 1st baby this December! Shelby and the "crew" all checked out of the last day of school early for a Last Day Fun Day at Berkeley's!

Memorial Day weekend was spent making the final updates to the flowerbeds and backyard and then we went fishing. Shelby & Rhett had a blast on his first fishing trip! Shelby caught 1 bass at Mr. Doughnuts pond and then we went to SAU's Engineering pond and we caught 8! They loved it!! We went to Texarkana Sunday afternoon to celebrate Gigi and Gramps 35 anniversary. Monday, we went to Mammy & Pop Pop's for the kids to play and just be kids :).
