Hunter's Safety Class

Sean with his Hunter's Safety certificate, card and patch. He scored an 88 on his test. Yes.

And then...

Walter got his contacts last night. Now he can see! Life is going to be different now that he will be able to see everything that he has been missing. Just imagine how good his grades would have been in school if he would have worn his glasses at school. Ooops.

This wedding ring quilt belonged to Great-grandma Holt.

Aunt Barbara's wedding ring quilt that Granddaddy pieced and Grandma quilted.

This quilt is pieced using primarily feed sack material.

Catching Air

I caught Sean out in the street this evening with the neighborhood crowd. They were riding up and down this ramp and doing some jumps. I was experienmenting with the new camera and the action setting, when I got this picture of Sean up in the air catching some air. The shot is a bit blurred, but for a first try....not too bad.

Granny Visits

My Walk

While the boys were shooting, Carla and I took a walk down to the Amelia Dam and took these shots along the way.

Shooting Expedition

We headed out this afternoon to the Amelia Wildlife Area, to take a crack at the shooting range there. The guys set up on the rifle shooting range and had a wonderful time shooting at the turkey head targets. Sean did an excellent job and if it had been an actual hunting situation, he would have killed two or more.

Dean & Sean heading back in after setting up targets.

Sean loading up.

Taking the shot.

Sean checked out his shooting.

The Kiss

My sister put this together shortly after the wedding, but I just found out how to share it on the blogger. Enjoy.

What Is It???

Took this shot after church today. It was on the car door and Danielle saw it as she was getting in. Does anyone have any idea what type of catepillar or whatever it may be? Which is end is the front?

We went out after dinner and found him an instrument. Now comes the work on his part - practice, practice, practice. Here is to SUCCESS!!

Sean is testing out his new french horn before school.
