Camri's Preschool Graduation

Camri graduated from preschool Friday night. She is going to miss preschool very much. She is looking forward to kindergarten but I do not believe she realizes what going to school every day is going to be like. She likes to sleep in and have pancakes for breakfast.

Camri, Ellie Mae and the Flag Race

Camri participated in her first Flag Race. She "raced" Ellie Mae back to get the flag and about that time a big wind blew the flag out of the bucket. She circled until her Mom could put it back in the bucket. She "raced" back and dropped it in the barrel. She did a fantastic job. She was very proud of herself.

Obstacle Course

They held a small obstacle course class in the arena at the Showdeo. Loren and Super Spanky won the class. Spanky will be for sale in the mule sale at Jake Clark's. He is consigned by Dave Merriman of Illinois. He is a really nice mule - for more information about Spanky you can look at the Jake Clark Mule Sale catalogue or give Loren a call.

Trail Ride

At the Sycamore Springs Mule Show they started the day with a trail ride around Jerry Rush's property and through the exotic animal part and by his lodge. We did not arrive in time for that - but we heard from those who went that it was magnificent. They had a really nice group of horses and mules for the trail ride.
