Hunters Safety for Railey

Railey just finished taking the Hunters Safety Class. She is only 9 years old, but she really wanted to take it. So we signed her up. The class went from 7-9 p.m Monday -Friday. We were worried about how tired she would be and if she would be able to do it. She is normally in bed by 9 every night. She went to class each night. At the end of the week they took the written test on Friday night and she passed with a 94%. We were so happy for her. She was so proud of herself. She then had to do the shooting test on Saturday. She passed it along side some teenagers that failed. She was pretty happy. She got her certificate and now she is ready to hunt. We decided to celebrate by making a cake and having ice cream. She asked that we decorate the cake so we put a bullseye on it. She is such a smart kid. We are very proud of her.

Expecting Baby #5

So, this is something I never thought I would be doing again, but yet we are. We are having another baby (and yes, it is just one baby this time). We were very surprised. I am now about 15 weeks along. The baby is set to arrive around the 3rd week in October. It will be 7 years younger than the boys. We can't wait to find out if it is a boy or girl. We should find out next month. I have been sick and very tired but I was sick with my other pregnancies as well. I have been much more tired with this one. I blame it on being older. We are all very excited. It's crazy to think of going back to having a tiny baby around and changing diapers again and getting up during the night. I thought the day would never come when I would sleep through the night after the triplets were born but it did. I keep telling myself this one will be a piece of cake compared to what we went through with the boys. We are very excited to meet this new little person.
