As I was thinking on what to post today, I spent a little time perusing through some blogging posts. I was reading this one from the Pioneer Woman, with a child peering over my shoulder. In a moment, my oldest was gone. What followed didn't really surprise me, but it sure was fun to follow...

Gathering the branches...Cutting...Cutting...More cutting...
Taking a well deserved break...
Prepping the frame...Finished product...Time to play...

What a fun afternoon - ah, the joys of summer.

    Hi, Sarah!
    My children, like yours, have had great fun with homemade bows. They never got so far as constructing a teepee, though! Very nice work, children.
