As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Thursday was our western pep rally. It's questionable whether that's really a "dress-up day" when all of us pull our boots and denim out of our closets come Rodeo season. Regardless, it's a fun day to let our native Texan really shine.
The day as a whole was crazy. Starting with my 5:45am three-way wake-up call between Lexi, Caroline and I, I knew it was going to be a long day. The day before Lexi, Liz and I were decorating the player of the week water jugs when Lexi's dog scratched me. I didn't think anything of it until the next day when I saw what started out to be some dead skin now turned to a colorful gash on the side of my leg. Not pretty. I didn't have time to think about it, but as the day wore on it started to really bother me. And all it took was a trip to the clinic before I ended up at the doctor's office instead of my 5th period English class. Turns out I'll be just fine, but it added to the chaos of the day. And everyone in the waiting room probably thought I rode my horse to the doctor.
All we had was a mere two hour break between the pep rally and the game. We demolished the Morton Ranch Mavericks 42-6 in our first district game! It was nice to be at home again with our dedicated fans. The only downside was the looming thought of school the next day...
I considered passing on school but my inner nerd took over and forced my exhausted self out of bed. I did, however, decide to pass on Fiji Foam at UT with some friends which I am regretting now but I know I'll be thankful for come Sunday.

See, I don't just take pictures in the halls at school all 7 hours! Occassionally, we have this thing called class. This one would be APES (Environmental Science) with Becca, Julianne and Sterett.

Austin and I...little did he know that in just a few hours he would be in our skit falling into the pep rally crowd. A boy from each grade had to spin around a bat 15 times, run to the other side of the gym and circle a girl 5 times and finish by wheel barrowing her to the other side. Let's just say there were quite a few collapsing cowboys.

So that marks the halfway point for our pep rally season. Three down. Three to go. Tomorrow night, there's a birthday bash that I plan to look quite glowing at. More on that next!
