Tonight is the official kick off of the 2016 season and it couldn’t come at a better time! I
think Mike was going stir crazy these past 2 weeks not getting on bulls. While some take the
break as a time to heal up that’s never Mike’s plan. He loves riding and tries to go to as many
events as he can.
The weekend after finals was his start of the 2016 season and he’s attended every event
he could since then. I’m happy and thankful to say that Mike has stayed healthy through the
break and done an amazing job at the events he’s attended!
Watching him ride during this break I saw a resurgence in his love of riding and he
looked so happy being on top of those bulls. I’m not sure that I can put into words the joy you
feel watching someone you love do something they love to do and being truly at peace with it. I
am so thankful that God has put this into his life and that I am lucky enough to get to watch him
I am so excited for this next season and what it has in store for our family. As some of
you know Peter has officially turned 2 years old which I still can’t believe myself! Where has the
time gone?! So this next year me and Peter won’t be able to travel with Mike to every event like
we have for the past 2 years. While I’m excited for this next chapter in our lives Peter and I both
will miss being at every event cheering Mike on in person. But that doesn’t mean that we’ll cheer
any less louder from home!
Praying for all the riders, bull fighters and livestock to have a safe and healthy 2016
