But what got all of them excited was when Nick talked about jumping horses and all the different medals he won in horse shows. Feeling left out Mark turned to the local stables, with the idea of learning how to jump as well to show his friends that he is cool just like Nick. Now Kim, the owner of the local horse stables and she is also a trainer, has grown up around horses and has seen the good side and the not so nice side of horses. She has also seen good riders and bad riders and some that are impatient and think they can just jump on a horse and go. When
Baptism Parable Kara has been riding horses almost her entire life. Since the age of 9 she has been riding at Wolf Ridge Stable in Foster, Rhode Island. Riding meant the world to her and she wasn’t in it for the competition, until her trainer bribed her. The day of the horse show finally came in June and all she had to support her was her mother, Allie, and her trainer, Beth. It was Kara’s first horse show ever.
A few of my longer term involvement includes being a member of the Junior Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Committee going on four years now. Once I turn twenty-one I will join the adult committee and then hopefully become a lifetime member. The rodeo comes around once a year for a short period of time, but the amount of production and involvement from both the costumers and volunteer works is outstanding. To be able to put on such a great performance at all levels is a great accomplishment. As a junior member, I work shifts in all the different committees within the rodeo to gain valuable work experience and knowledge that I can take later on in life and into my decision when choosing my adult committee.
Her owners said she was only 8 months old but her temperament was that of a very calm 2-year-old and she ended up winning the competition. When we got home that night, I started searching the Internet for Great Dane puppies.

I found a breeder in Mabelvale, AR that was selling puppies for $325.
“If I have to wait here one more minute I’m going to start punching babies”. Brittany whined as we slowly made our way through the Splash Mountain waiting line in Disney World, supposedly the happiest place on Earth. However, after the rain, high school drama, and 5 endless days of walking it was starting to be more of a pain then anything. Every other year, like most high schools our Visual and performing arts departments takes a “glorious” spring break trip to the one and only Disney World. According to the itinerary’s handed to our parents it would be a one of a kind learning experience, full of workshops, performances and behind the scenes look at the performing parts of Disney.
When I first met Mrs. Perkins, I had no idea how tremendously she would impact my life. I have been privileged to have her as my band director for three wonderful years. Each day I cannot wait to enter her classroom and play my clarinet. Mrs. Perkins has always encouraged me to pursue music and practice diligently. She sincerely cares for each of her students, and Mrs. Perkins listens to any concerns they might have.
There is a long standing festival in Luling, Texas; the Watermelon Thump. Each year a queen is chosen from the entering senior class girls and each year the rules are the same; anyone can vote. The winner will get a substantial college scholarship for her college of choice. So there is a local group of women whose daughters have all made “queen” and they want to make sure that the “right kind” of girl gets it each year. Some of these women work out of town; they have parties the day of the voting and have even been known to rent buses to bring voters in.
Marian Anderson Buhmi Hello, my name is Marian Anderson and I was born in Philadelphia in 1897. I love to sing. My mother remembers when I use to walk and dance around the house singing, She stopped me one afternoon, while I was singing and told me, “Marion, you will one day become a great singer”. When I was 17, they wouldn’t let me go to music school because I was black and that made me practice more. I won a singing contest and I was on my way to New York and then I became famous.
