Well we are in New York visiting with my sister and her family. My niece is quite the archery genius. I have been keeping up with her progress as she has been competing. She is awesome with all her medals and trophies. I couldn’t be more proud. Well today she had archery practice and we decided to all go and get in a little practice. Gotta say, archery is pretty friggin awesome! Anyway.
In the beginning I just sat on the bleachers wishing it was me standing at the line with a bow in my hand.
This particularly proficient pink pony-tailed young lady is my niece. I couldn’t be more proud of her if I tried. She kicks booty at the archery competitions.
Eventually it was my turn…. it was SO awesome. I took the class and they put us at the line and my first shots weren’t so good. But they weren’t so bad either. 1 in the white. The majority of the rest in the black. Second time at the line I had improved. I was doing so well midway through that a lady walked up to me and was like “You are awesome!” I said thank you, but I gotta say, I was beaming inside. I was so proud of myself. These are some of my targets.
This my last target before I pulled my arrows and how my target looked after I was done. I had SO much fun today. This is quite the stress reliever. Makes me want to go home and find an archery range. Awesome right? Not bad for a beginner.
This last photo is of my husband, my son, and me. We’re all at the line. I think this one of our first trips to the line.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our day. All and all this has been a great trip home to visit with family. I’ll be back home on Monday, so know that the blog will be late. BFN!
