Snapshot Muse #13 - The Old Cow Man






Come a-ti yi youpy youpy yea youpy yea
Come a-ti yi youpy youpy yea
It's bacon and beans most every day,
I'd just as soon be eating prairie hay...

 It's Cowboy Day at our school today. It's actually become sort of like a tradition, where we'll have five fun days, during the week prior to spring break. Now our students will not let us forget, much as the teachers sometimes would like to. The students choose what fun thing will be done each day - well, we do have to make sure they don't go too wild. From past experience we know it can get a touch out of hand. For the most part, though, it's usually a lot of fun for everybody. Today we had Dora from Fairholme here as a sub. She must have thought she took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up on a ranch. (:

Here's what our week will look like:

Monday - Bring-a-stuffed-animal-Day
Tuesday - Cowboy, or Wild West Day, as some prefer to call it
Wednesday - Funny-Day (wearing something funny)
Thursday - Twins Day (two friends or siblings dress alike)
Friday - Wear-Something-You've-Never-Worn-Before-Day

Of all our cowgirls and cowboys, I think our Kindergartners were the cutest!

Of course, this post needs a cowboy song: The Old Cow man - Don Edwards
