Justin Went Huntin'

So I should have posted this already but I didn't have time today and Justin was on the computer all day so I couldn't get to this until now!
Sorry it took so long to post this Justin!
Well Justin decided a few months ago that he wanted to try hunting as an extra curricular activity! My Brother-law Jeff was very excited about this news because it meant one more person to hunt with, my sister was even more excited because that might mean Jeff will leave her out of the hunting life. Justin was a little apprehensive about going out first thing and hunting something big like a deer or an elk so Jeff told him to go buy an over the counter Javelina tag!
He prepared for weeks getting his gun sighted in and he loaded lots of ammo to be prepared! This weekend was the BIG HUNT!
They went out to an obscure place in area 31 and the first day saw nothing but dear...much to Jeff's dismay. The next day Monica and I knew that it would be a long day with the kids while the guys were gone all day hunting. Around 12:00 Monica noticed a text from Jeff saying
"Pig down"
She was speechless she couldn't believe that they went out and found something and actually shot it!
Justin was (is) so excited they came home and took care of it right away!
It was so gross. I remember, you know, growing up babysitting for the McCarey's seeing the taxidermied animals and thinking whatever they are cool. I never saw the actual after math of it, it is something I will need to get used to!
Anyway here are a few pictures of Justin's first kill!

Justin only took one shot and he shot the thing right where he was aiming and it died just great (that is what he said). Good Job Justin and I guess good luck next time!

Michelle's Artwork

We recieved a letter in the mail addresses to: The Parents of Michelle Platt...My first thought was oh great what now but I was pleasently surprised!
it said:
Dear Parents,
I am so pleased to announce that your child's artwork has been selected as one of the exceptional designs to be on display for the month of February through March 1st...To be selected for this display is quite an honor ...as only 3 to 4 pieces of art are chosen to represent each of our schools for the present month! Congratulations to you and your talented artist.

How exciting! We knew Michelle loved art and she always works hard on her assignments at school and they always look great. I am just excited that she will have this memory of her art work!

I will get a picture ASAP and put it up soon!

Sometimes My Kids are Funny!

So sometimes my kids are funny here are a couple of examples:

On Friday after school we were running a couple of errands and Michelle was looking through Parker's backpack and found something he made at school. It happened to be a couple pieces of fabric sewn together and Michelle was very excited for Parker and what he did and he was so excited that Michelle was being nice to him.
Michelle "wow Parker this is really good you are so smart"
Parker "Thanks Elle yea I am smart I'm K-mart Smart"

Justin looked at me and said "Did he just say what I think he said"
Megan "yep"

Then later that night we were all sitting down to eat dinner and this is the conversation we had

Michelle "Mom did you get the e-mail about the movie from Mrs. Billingsley"
Me"Yes I did"
Michelle"where is the theater we are going to"
Me "It's the AMC"
Michelle"What are the streets by the Theater"
Me"Stapley and Baseline"
Michelle"is that this way?" (pointing in the direction of the AMC and stapley and baseline)
Justin"Why are you asking a question like that if you don't know where you are asking about"
Michelle" I don't know"
Me" You could have asked...Is it by the Wal-mart we always go to?"
Eli" There is a Wal-mart by our school"
Me and Justin" no there's not"
Justin" there is a Sam's Club"
Eli" well I don't know I'm not a girl"

See I told you I have funny kids sometimes!
