Cowboy Girls Rock!

I don't know about you, but there is some little something special about kids raised in the country. I've raised three of my own and now my little 3 yr. old grandaughter Karli has had the privilege of breathing country air, rip-roaring through pastures horseback and playing in a hay barn. For sure and for certain, I'm not dogging city kids but I tell ya what, country kids stick out in a crowd like a sore thumb. There is a quality about them.....and a little redneck. Even now, little Karli is out making mudpies in her sandbox...and she's buck naked....and doesn't care. Her powder room is the front yard, and her best friends are two little dogs. Her favorite toy is the corn pile in the barn, her favorite snack is a haycube...well, that's just a little wierd...but oh well. These qualities may prove to be a little strange when she starts school, but she will know how to plant tomatoes, pick pumpkins, make cookies, and know where baby calves come from...and that's not all bad. I might ought to be emphasizing a few more feminine qualities before too long, but for now, she's just gonna have to have fun, be a kid, and love life...I do...Till next time, adios.

Nothing wrong with kids that want to play naked in the yard. They usually out grow it before they become teenagers. :) Yep we are blessed to have raised ours in the boonies as well.

Every kid should be so lucky as to have a childhood filled with mudpies to make and barns to explore.

I think she's being raised JUST RIGHT! I am so sad my boys have lived in town thus far...but. Thank goodness for the sale barn and we can go get dirty and work cattle there!!

She looks pretty tall for 3 yrs old. Such a little cutie!

I was raised in the country boonies, as were my boyz and now my Grands. Life is always good with dirty hands!
