CC Mama’s

Filed under: Stories — Tags: , , , , , — Missy @ 4:54 pm  

Well this CC Mama just sent her youngest off to pre-k today and it is best explained as a bittersweet experience…  It is a combination of pride watching your children grow up mixed in with a bit of empty nest syndrome.  I am sure I faired much better today than I will the day they go off to college :)  

Hope you all enjoy a few pictures of my babies.

Wesley’s first day of Pre-K

Rebecca’s first day of second grade.

If your a CC Mama be sure to share your stories and pics with us on our facebook page!

A Couture Cowgirl is YOU, Proclaim it Proudly!  And with Style, of course…

1. Always load your horse last in the trailer so it is the first one unloaded. By the time he’s got his horse unloaded, you will have your cinch pulled and be mounted up ready to go – lessening the chance of him riding off without you with your horse trying to follow while you are still trying to get your foot in the stirrup.
