This is an all time lazy blogger record. Here is a quick update on the past few days. Cooper and I picked up Grandma Curry in St. Louis and then drove ALL DAY on Thursday. We finally arrived in Monticello, Arkansas Friday morning. The rodeo was at a fairgrounds outside of town where I had NO CELL PHONE or wireless card service. That was a new deal for me. My cell phone always works and I was having major withdraws all day Friday and Saturday. It poured buckets Friday during the slack but all in all it was a good weekend. Sunday morning we moved the camper back to civilization so that I would be able to take rodeo entries on Monday night. I have to have internet and phone for that. We are currently staying in Monticello at my friend Jolyn’s barn. We will head to Harrison, Arkansas tomorrow morning. The rodeo starts on Thursday night. My Mom had a root canal the day before we picked her up so she has been slowly recovering. It has really hurt her on and off this weekend. Cooper is wild as usual. He has mastered the stairs in the camper and is climbing on and off the couch with ease. We went to the park to play on Sunday afternoon and Cooper did something he had NEVER done before. Cried and cried and cried… there was no calming him down. All we could figure out was that his little tummy was upset. When we got back to the camper I let him play in a bucket of water outside and all of the bending and stooping seemed to help him release a little pressure (that’s a nice way of saying he farted a lot). It was such an uneasy feeling to not be able to calm him down. He’s always so happy and a crying baby was a new thing for me! I’ll try and shoot some pics the next few days so I’ll have some to post for you. Sorry for the blogging vacation. Things should be back to normal now.
