Elk Hunt Winkle Ranch

This past weekend we went to the pasture at the Winkle Ranch to shoot a cow elk. The kids also shot their pellet guns, fished in the stream and went coyote hunting with grandpa Brent and Tyler. The pasture is so pretty and relaxing. There are alot of elk to see, but unfortunatly, I didnt come home with one. I really didn't get a chance to shoot. Our plans are to go back in a few weeks before the guided hunts begin.

Dillong fishing. I think he cought quite a few fish!

Here is a pretty picture I took of the stream.

Blake threw his fishing line a little to far and got it tanbles on a tree branch. He had to cross the log over the waterfall to get it unhooked.

Mariah finally got her braces on today. She has been waiting for years to get them on. I think they make her look much older than she is.

Back To School

The kids went back to school last wednesday. I am now home with no kids in tow. I get 5 hrs. of me time. The house is cleaned by 9:30 and so I spend quite alot of time cooking(trying new recipes), sewing, reading, running errands and hanging out on the computer. When it starts to cool down, I'll get back into the yard thing. Here are pics of the kids on the first day of school.

Mariah is in 8th grade.
