Pistol is getting broke!

Finally, we are taking the yellow colt (Pistol) to get his first thirty days of riding. Yesterday, he loaded on the trailer for the first time. His first trailer ride isn't a short one...4 hours. I took a few pictures at the barn yesterday.

The audience...these are four nosey babies!
He's loaded and ready to go!

"Cowboys Ride to Help Shriners Children Walk"

Yesterday, Garrett, Mr. Jeff and I got up too EARLY for Garrett to rope in the slack at the Ocala Shriner's Rodeo. I am trying to convince Garrett that I need a new camera. So, I have Devon's and have been practicing taking pictures. Seems this is the only way I can get pictures of these two photogenic cowboys!
Pretty sure they were discussing the "game plan".

Wiggin' Out

My best friend since elementary school is getting married! For her bachelorette trip we spent a very eventful day in Orlando. We went indoor skydiving, took a dance class and had a night out on the town. For our night out we all wore hott pink wigs and Katy wore a platinum blonde one. We got plenty of looks before the night was over. It was hard for me to understand that SO many people didn't "get it". I mean, did they really think we all just wore hott pink wigs for no reason!? Anyway, we had a blast! I don't think that I have laughed that much in a really long time.

Book Barn

I spent another long day in my classroom today. A HUGE thank you to Amanda and Audrey for helping. Amanda has such a large heart. She spent her day helping me move furniture, clean and decorate. I am honored to call her my friend. Hopefully, I can return the favor when she has a classroom of her own. I am also thankful for Audrey. I think I almost caused her to have a heart attach when she saw the VERY messy closet. Her need for organization helped put the finishing touches on the furniture placement.

 I wanted to share some pictures of the book barn. I think that my students are going to love the housekeeping center in the bottom.

Here it goes...

After reading all of my friend's blogs...I decided I wanted to give it a try. I mentioned it to Garrett and he said, "You want to do WHAT?!" I spent the afternoon with my friend making favor bags for this weekend's bachelorette party. We had talked about it earlier in the day and I (Franne) finally just did it. I have been up for about two and a half hours trying to perfect my layout. It isn't going as planned. I am going to need some help! I think that it is finally time to close the computer and try again another day.
