Showing Off the Boys Link-up

Last month, our two boys shot at the state archery competition at the Farm Show building.  Our oldest has shot this competition since he was about 10 years old.  Our youngest, although he went to every archery class, never showed much interest in shooting competition.  Then one morning he surprised us and said that he would like to shoot the state competition this year.  So, we had one shooting the Junior division class A, and one shooting the Junior division class B.  I am so very pleased to brag that both of them placed.  Our oldest, Big Mac was first in his class.  Our youngest, his first year ever shooting, came in 2nd in his class!  Our boys are growing into these fine young men.  Even if they hadn't placed, I would be pleased with how they carried themselves throughout this LONG two-day tournament.   It was an exercise in perseverance, especially for T-bone, in his first year.  And persevere they did!


The Mob Society is having a Friday link-up with pictures of boys and their boyishness, so I thought this would be an appropriate post for their link up.  Check out the other mom's posts here.
