Chris headed off on his first hunting trip today. While I'm not a hunter, I am thrilled that he has found something to be passionate about and committed to. His preparation for hunting with his bow has been methodical; each step well-thought out and purposeful. He has practiced. He has shown excitement. He has modeled for our kids how to start something new and stick with it.
I wasn't a super fan of this new adventure of Chris's at first. I've come to realize, however, it is so much more than that...even if he will come home smelly after a few days in the woods. ;)
