Rodeo Weekend

The heat continued into the weekend with heat indicies well into the 100s. We kept it cool through the day on Saturday and headed up to Holton Saturday evening for the Jackson County Rodeo. The boys enjoyed the animals in general, and had to pet a few of the sheep and steers used for the kids events and roping. The rodeo had bronco riding, mutten busting, steer riding, steer roping, team roping, barrel racing, and the finale of bull riding. The final bull rider, an incoming high school freshman, took a hard hit from the bull bucking. His helmet flew off and he was knocked unconscious, but it sounded as if he was going to be okay.

The remainder of the weekend included a trip to the farmers market for sweet corn, green beans, and more; mowing the lawn; and a look through the electrical fuse boxes to ensure they are marked correctly.
