Out with the Children
« on: October 26, 2007, 11:07:21 AM »
Well today was a professional development day for the teachers at my children's school.....so no classes for them. I did what any red blooded father would do when there kids are not in school and he is on days off.....I took them hunting.
Well we brought the Weatherby .257 along in the event we saw a moose calf or whitetail and the .410 single shot.
We saw two grouse (ruffed) and one came home with us...the other well it disappeared in the bush as soon as it got off the road.....I could not even hear it walking....I'm guessing it flew.
Well here is the photo....hoping to show more....just some happy children and one ruffed grouse.

Hello Mr. Canuck;

That is a wonderful photograph of beautiful, happy children!

The fact that you take up time with them to spend a day with them at every opportuntiy, speaks volumes of your obviously good character.  If only more parents would be honestly involved with and concerned about their children.

Your love and your time is the two greatest gifts you can give them!  Rest assured, Mr. Canuck, that in later years you WILL be rememberd for it by your children!  The time you are taking to spend with them will have after effects even to your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

This picture says MUCH MORE than "the children had a good time today".  It speaks of a father that loves and is involved with his children.  If you were to be called into eternity this day, your children would have been blessed indeed to have had a father so dedicated and concerned for them, and the after effects would go on for generations.

By the way, Mr. Canuck, I would strongly consider having that picture matted and framed and given a prominent place to hang in your home. 

It is, to me, as worthy -- and even more worthy -- a rememberance of your involvement with the outdoors (passing it on to your children -- and the obvious HAPPINESS on your children's faces) as any trophy you might have displayed.  In fact, this day and this picture might actually be symbolic of YOUR GREATEST outdoor achievement of all!

God's blessings be with you and all your family, Mr. Canuck;
