A Texas-sized THANK YOU to the 750+ families who saddled up for SAA’s own Cowboy Breakfast on Friday, January 29. The 8th Grade Class sponsors the breakfast fundraiser each year to raise money for their class gift. This year's chairs, Elizabeth & Corbin Snow and Larry & Laura Conn, led the eighth grade boys and their parents on a great adventure.
Donning their best cowboy and cowgirl duds, folks enjoyed tacos – over 1,400 were hand-rolled, thanks to the eighth grade – served with hot cocoa and coffee. Adorable puppies from SNIPSA captured the attention of buckaroos of all ages. After the successful addition of sack races at last year's event, boys once again lined up to prove who could hop down the lawn and back the fastest.
The weather set the stage for a perfect morning: just chilly enough to have the campfires going. Live music from Dr. Hall and Dr. Hedges kept everyone in the country spirit and cowboy roper grandparent, Mr. Richard Sample, demonstrated and taught his lassoing skills. Boys and parents alike took turns trying to rope the "steers" hanging out around the courtyard, but some lassos ended up around fellow cowboys instead!
If it's been a while since you've attend Cowboy Breakfast at SAA, be sure not to miss it next year on January 27, 2017.
Thank you to the 8th grade class and their families for hosting this traditional SAA event!
