ESL Students Get Their Boots on for the Rodeo!

The sun was shining and the weather was perfect for learning to line dance Wednesday! Every year we take students to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo to experience the largest rodeo in the world and something truly Houstonian. To get everyone in the spirit, we kick off the day with Texas chili, iced tea, and line dancing. Guests from the Houston Rodeo come to teach us how to move to the “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” and kick it to the “Cupid Shuffle.”

Later than evening we loaded up on the bus to experience the rodeo and try out our new moves at the OneRepubic concert. Burritos, fried food, and cotton candy kept our students full while we watched incredible bull riding and barrel racing, followed by old crowd favorites that were new to many of our students – mutton bustin’ and the calf scramble. Everyone loved seeing the kids get right back up and wave at the cameras after falling off their animals! OneRepublic rocked a crowd of nearly 71,000 at NRG Stadium, and especially our students – everyone knew the words and sang along. Can’t wait to come back next year!
