Our neighbor asked if Sterling might enjoy learning to hunt, and has taken Sterling several times. Last weekend, he and our neighbor both got a turkey! They have yet to fill Sterling’s deer tag, but Sterling was thrilled to have been successful. My ten year old is filling my freezer! Pretty cool.
Good skills. Growing kids. It feels so odd to be moving into this phase, parenting the middle years. I kind of love it though! (Ask me in a few more years. I still have a 20 month old that I’m cheering for when he forms a three word sentence and changing diapers and filling sippy cups. I’m thinking this may be different when I’m beyond the baby years.)
