#2,108 Archery.

For Jake, a manly post today!

Because he seemed to be a natural and had a lot of fun in Waco when Chip showed Ben how to shoot a compound bow, he got one for his birthday and took it out to my parents’ tonight after work to do some target shooting before it got dark. Me, mama, daddy and Hooper pulled up bag chairs and listened to the crickets chirp and watched him shoot, and every time we were baffled that he nearly hit the bullseye each time even though he’s brand new to archery.

He nearly split his arrow on the second try from 30 yards away.

In other news, I painted my nails deep red today. It makes me feel fancy even when I happen to know my socks don’t match.
