A Hunter Made
Miss Serenity has big news - she shot her first deer! One of our goals as parents is to produce useful human beings. We want our children to be able to take care of themselves and their families, "But if any provide not for his own, and specifically for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel" 1 Timothy 5:8. Part of that preparation is learning to hunt, gut, skin and process wild game. As you can see, Miss Serenity is well on her way!
Serenity is our cowgirl, so her rifle of choice is a .45 lever action. She is a dead-on shot with this rifle. She felled her deer with one shot - through the lungs and piercing the heart - instant death. She was using ammunition that she and Sir Knight reloaded right in our living room.
Our world is changing. Our children need to know how to take care of themselves and those they love. Now is the time to teach them.
