This girl? She's CERTIFIED!

I am so excited!



I finished up my 2 day 4-H Hunter Safety course yesterday and now I am a certified hunter :) You all knew I was country so this should be no surprise to you.



We also were able to shoot shotguns, 22s, and a muzzle-loader rifle.




For the first time ever I shot shotgun yesterday. Its kick was not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I also surprised myself on my ability to shoot it. I hit 5 out of the 5 clay pigeons so full score!




22s I've been shooting for probably 2 years now so it was nothing for me :) What was fun was the muzzle-loader! We actually put the powder and ball into the gun ourselves before we could even shoot. It was an extremely cool experience.




But, just to let you know, I doubt I will be hunting anytime soon. I am a complete animal person. My parents thought it would be a good idea to take the course just in case I ever decide to go hunting with my grandpa or uncle.



Other than that, a lot has been going on with me recently. I've been so busy with school, soccer, field trips, and you know, all that jazz :P



For the past couple soccer practices, I've been helping coach the 8-and-under team. Those kids are just so adorable! I have the best time coaching them because they are just so funny. I am now privileged to say, I have a "coach" before my name when the kids talk to me. Its so stinkin' adorable :)





Oh and here, I leave you with this:




I'm just full of wisdom, aren't I? :)


~Peace, Love, and Shooting Stars~



P.S. My dear friend Cindi allowed me to guest post over at her blog again :) See here. Please tell me what you think of the post!

  8. @JesusChick I did my hunters safety course this past spring in a online course, then certified it at a shooting range in Chiefland. The archery competitions are really hard, when I was 9 or 1O[i can't remember how old] I won 6th in the state 4-h archery competition, the older kids in the group went on to national finals (:

  10. I don't think I could ever shoot an animal unless it was a huge cat about to jump upon me :P I think it would be fun to learn how to shoot though :) I am a huge fan of Annie Oakley and all...
