The Elk

Travis killed his Elk on Sunday, Sept. 29th. It's an even 6 points on each side. He said it scores 365 & 1/2 (400 is record book big). He has it at the taxidermist now so this spring I'm going to officially have a dead animal on my wall. That's okay though, it's pretty cool. Besides, he can't draw out again for another 10 years. His uncle killed a 4 point on Wednesday night so all the boys were excited the hunt turned out so well.

We managed without Trav being home for 2 weeks but I'll tell you what...I don't know how single parents do it! My house is a disaster & I'm behind with school stuff!! I told Trav he probably couldn't have gone at a worse time. Caleb got shots the day before he left, I had 2 parties on the day he left, I had my monthly jewelry meeting, Sam had dance twice, & I had parent teacher conferences. I was getting over strep & then last night I threw up in the middle of one of my parent teacher conferences!!!! Not one of my finer moments in life for sure!

Anyway, we're doing good! We're almost all healthy here. OH! We have grass!!! I need to take pix now that my camera is back. Again, who knew someone could get so excited about grass!!
