Drawing lessons

This morning Mom painted a picture of a horse for Hans. Rachel saw it, and this is what she said to Mom:
"I really need to teach you how to draw a horse, because the one you drew this morning looks like a big, fat mouse."
Rachel then gave Mom a blank piece of paper and started to give Mom lessons on how to draw a horse. Rachel did have to start over about three different times before succeeding to make a horse that only had four legs and was satisfied with how it looked.

MN deer hunt

Megan got her first buck this weekend - with dad and Luke in the stand, too. Matt shot a nice buck from the same stand the same morning. 

Laura shot this buck on the afternoon drive. Yeah for girl hunters!
Fun to have all the little hunters around.
