Speaking of Camping.....

This little girl would love nothing more than to..... ....live in the country AND go fishing, hiking, exploring, cooking on a campfire, sleeping under the stars AND.....
....have her very own horse....

....to care for, love and of course....

RIDE!!!!!

Drew is our smack dab in the middle child....she is not by any means needy, but she does really thrive on one-on-one time spent with NPayne and I. She and NPayne joined the Adventure Guides group for that very reason.....they get to spend one-on-one quality time together. Our other children LOVE the outdoors, but Drew is a true "Granola Girl".... a lover of all things created by God. She is literally fascinated and completely grateful for any opportunity she has to explore the gift of our beautiful earth!

Of course there are always mishaps when you go camping....Drew shot herself in the arm with her bow while practicing her archery....How one shoots oneself in the arm while holding a bow and arrow????? I'll never quite understand, but she did; and she has the bruise to prove it. She received an eagle feather at the campout ceremony for being brave and toughing it out....when she shot herself. If she had shot herself a few more times, she would have then received turkey feathers....in other words....you gotta be quite a turkey to shoot yourself more than once (wink wink)!
She is always up for a challenge, but she mostly loves the time with her daddy!
