Last Saturday evening we celebrated Caleb's graduation from homeschooling. He didn't want a program or a slideshow, just a simple picnic with friends and family. His only other requests were to have homemade ice cream (coffee and peanut butter flavors) and to shoot claybirds. He pulled the old tractor he restored into the yard so that those who hadn't yet seen it could check it out.
You may find it odd that there are no photos below of Caleb. He doesn't like his picture being broadcast to the world, so I've learned to respect that desire. You will, however, see a photo of me at the very bottom. Caleb, his cousins and friends spent quite awhile trying to convince me to take part in the shooting. I finally gave in and told them I would shoot one time and only one time. M. had Ben stand behind me, in case I decided to fall over if the gun kicked! I managed though to stay on my feet - besides that, didn't I go and hit the claybird. I felt like Annie Oakley!!
