I've not heard of SQL Server 2008 R1

However to downgrade a database, you have to use transformation services (Import/Export) or create scripts to create the metadata and transfer data

Right click on your database name in the object explorer and goto Tasks - > Generate Scripts, then there is a wizard from that you can select the database objects to be scripted. Then save that script and run it on the other server.

The database schema does not change between SQL server 2008 and SQL server 2008 R2
If the user wants the database compatibility level to be that of SQL 2005 (90), right click on the database and select properties, under options change the database compatibility level.

Could you add detail on what the issue might be that?

ok, I created the script.  Is this something I can just send to my client? I am using the free edition and they are using whatever version companies use?  Is that going to be a problem?

I have not tried so can not say for sure, but you can backup your DB and send it to them for restoration.
The issue they will have to deal with is to modify the login/security settings.i.e. the database backup will have a reference to the login within the security settings of the database.  Unless you send them the create login user for that user that maintains the SID, their database will lack access by anyone other that administator/sa.
