Weekend in Camo
The first weekend in November had to be the the first weekend or even a day of a weekend we had open in forever. What do we decide to do with our open weekend? Oh well, not like its surprising for a weekend in the fall but Ben wants to hunt. Which I am totally good with since we need the meat in the freezer. Did we get some in there you ask? Yup we did! We actually went down to Jackson all weekend and Ben hunted there. I have been wanting to hook him up with a guy from my church who is an avid hunter and taxidermist and they have met a few times and talked a lot about hunting. So we set it up that he could hunt with him one day and another day on some friends property. He was so excited all day Friday not being able to wait or stop thinking about Saturday morning. He said he saw a couple Saturday morning but nothing close enough but was beyond thrilled when he was shown the pictures of the deer that roam there. Definitely wants to make a trip back and I am glad he had a good time out with my friend. Saturday night and Sunday he went out and he ended up shooting doe Saturday night at dusk. I got a phone call saying "Come quick, with flashlights" So out Dad and I went with our lights to hunt her down. He was so giddy and excited to just get one to put in the freezer and help us out by feeding us all winter. I've got such a Man :) But it makes me so happy seeing him with that look and big smile on his face. So the weekend was successful and fun, I know he really wanted to bring back a big buck from Jackson but a doe is better then nothing! And that just means if he got one the first time there wouldn't be more to look forward too, so hopefully another trip down will be just as fun.
As for me, I spent the weekend mostly resting, trying to catch up on this Bronchitis and give myself a break. I met up with some friends a few times to have a quick chat which is always nice and helped mom and dad out with some things around the house. I did feel much better after the weekend and I think its what we needed. Or both needed.
This weekend is very exciting for us. Ben has some important stuff going on and I'm siting here praying and wishing he is doing well and its going good. I can't reveal anything yet but hopefully soon we will know more. As for me I am about to get ready for another gymnastics meet with my girls! Having so much fun this year with all of them. I know today will be another great day for them!
P.S. - I forgot to say that everytime Ben snags a deer, Reggie seems to think it is HIS deer. He is either so proud of his dad that he is protective or he just thinks dad got it for him. Last year he sat in front of the buck and growled if anyone came close. This year wasn't growling but oh he was excited! He at least sat good last year too, but he wouldn't take his eyes off the doe this year.
