This is a busy time of year for us, and we love it! By the time that the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is over we will have reached out and impacted 11 families-10 in Texas and one in Utah.
It all started at the SandHills Stock Show and Rodeo in Odessa where Nathan got to spend time with some of the PRCA’s best as well as a shopping spree to Cavender’s Boot City prior to attending the Christian Youth Night at the rodeo. The SandHills Christian Youth Night Committee always rolls out the red carpet for the Ropin’ Dreams children and their family.
Fort Worth was next on our schedule and Anna was treated like a VIP complete with limo ride, shopping spree at Cavendar’s Boot City. Then it was off to watch the rodeo action for her and her family. Dr. Mack was an awesome host for this event, and we thank him very much!
We had the opportunity to be part of a very special surprise for Carson in Utah as well. It was brought to our attention that Carson loves Bull Riders and he wanted a pair of “bull rider chaps” like the big guys wear. So with some very special help from JAG Saddlery-San Angelo TX, a new pair of chaps were delivered to Carson in Utah last week. We have pictures in the gallery of Carson and his brother with their new chaps!
We are into the second week of San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo and since this is where the inception of Ropin’ Dreams became a reality, this is our home. During the run of this rodeo we will have taken 8 children and their families to 8 separate performances. While at the rodeo they have the opportunity to walk around the grounds, view the exhibits and experience all that San Antonio has to offer. For some of these children this is their first time at San Antonio. It is so rewarding to watch their eyes light up when the fireworks go off at the beginning of the rodeo.
Ropin’ Dreams would not be able to provide the good times for these children without the support of all of our sponsors and volunteers. We appreciate all your support!
