What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Daddy would be proud...

They set up a row of old jars and bottles for the shooters and then I took my turn.

After the first haven't-done-this-in-TOO-many-years miss, I blew EVERYONE's socks off by hitting EVERY single one after that-probably a dozen. In fact, I was SO confident (after the second shot) that I asked for smaller jars. Kinda joking.

But they found them. In fact, they put a jelly jar on top of a quart jar and then propped the lid upright ontop of the jelly jar and then challenged me to go from TOP to BOTTOM on the pyramid.

And I did. TWICE.


Just call me Annie Oakley.

(PS. The best part was seeing the suprise and (gasp!) PRIDE in Matt's face when I was done!)

next time you should shoot the vermin in your garden; moving objects!

Good for you! I used to target shoot, and was quite good. I even went hunting a few times, but never saw a thing when I was out.

Abigail said...

Woot! Well done! I haven't shot a gun for years; people would probably urge me NOT to pick one up! :)

Christine said...

Way to go! I am not very good at shooting, but my dear hubby loves it so, when I go shooting with him at the range. Blessings!

Dana said...

DH tried to get me to shoot one time...so I did. I didn't miss and he never asked me to shoot again! :-)

Wow, I am very impressed!

Hey, I'm totally proud of you too! I'd love to be able to learn to target shoot.

Somehow, my family frowns on it. Hehh, my family knows me. Granny with a gun is a scary thought!!! -grin-
