Ya'll pray for me

Pray hard, because as of today I am officially the parent of a teenager. Thirteen years ago, this morning to be exact, the Deerslayer came into our lives.



Incredibly interested in nature, hunting, trap shooting, and primitive ways, he is an intriguing person. A bit hard to get to know, but very special to us.




All of those wonderful qualities and he still uses my dining room table to clean his weapons.




I might let that slide for a few more years.



Happy Birthday!

  4. I'm so there with ya. My Josh was the same - still is. He's 24 now. Strong silent type, but when he says something, it's worth listenin' to. We did all the hunting, fishing, trapping, bow-fishing, animals, lizards, snakes, iguanas, etc. Boy, are you in for the ride of your life!

    PS - it's a good ride!

  5. You have my prayers and lots of them. I raised 3 boys through teenage years and it wasn't easy. But with the Lord's help, we got through it with love still intack and they truly are 3 men I can be proud of.
    You and Joshua will have your problems, but it will all be worth it.

  9. Can't believe he is 13! That means I am getting older...which can't possibly be true?
    Happy Birthday Deerslayer!

  10. Happy Birthday to him - can't believe he is 13 already. And you don't look old enough to have a 13 year old!!!!! Thanks for the info on Zumba - I checked with Laura and they are full. Maybe I'll get in if they start another class. And glad you like my cake plate - you should paint you one up! Have a great rest of the week!
