Preschool Cowboy Day: The Final Edition

Throughout our three-and-a-half years in College Station, Cowboy Day has been one of the highlights of Will and Hallie's preschool years. Taking place each March (scheduled as closely to Texas Independence Day as possible), Cowboy Day gives the kids an opportunity to dress up in their finest cowboy/girl attire and try their hands at preschool-ized versions of farm and ranch activities.

In less than two months our family will close the door on the preschool years, which made this - our last preschool Cowboy Day - a day to remember. (Check out Cowboy Day 2012 here, and Cowboy Day 2013 here. I don't seem to have pictures from Cowboy Day 2011.)

Here's my gal Hal in all her cowgirl glory!
Trying out a real saddle (and lassoing). 
Riding the rocking horses (which have been her favorite part
of Cowboy Day since she first started preschool three years ago).
Lassoing the horse with a hula hoop.
Fishing in the stream.
Tossing snakes in the boots. 
Roasting marshmallows over the (fake) fire.
I think Hallie will have one more opportunity to dress up in her cowgirl attire for school as a kindergartener, but I know that by first grade the teachers and students are all business and no longer celebrate Cowboy Day. Enjoy it while you can, kiddo!
