Cole is amazing. He is growing up so fast. Shane and I are amazed at the person he is. I mean, this kid passes up fast food because he "doesn't want to eat anything greasy." He is a proud Christian. He mentions ideas that he comes up with for helping/teaching/showing others about Jesus. Sometimes I am taken back by the things he does, and just thank God for what a great kid He has given us, and how much Cole has taught us. He's growing up so fast (oh crap...I already said that). And he is SO independent and confident. So this is what this post is all about:
When I was tucking Cole in a couple nights ago, he got my attention, looked me square in the eyes, and said, "Hey! Will you be my darl'in??"
Cole joined Central Oklahoma Junior Rodeo Association this year. His first rodeos were March 25th and 26th. He rode a sheep and a calf each night. I am so very proud of him, I can barely contain it. It's a scary sport for a mama, but he has told us since he was 2 that he wants to ride bulls. ;) We were at an open rodeo when he was four, and he did mutton busting (sheep) and enjoyed it. The next time he rode he got a gold buckle and the rest is HISTORY. He's hooked.
Here are some pics from his first rodeos in the association:
This is the first night. His new buddy was teaching him how to spray his rope.
