Quentin turned 14. He's growing like a weed. He already wears the same size shoes as Paul!After they had cake, Quentin and the boys put up our tent We are going to spend a week camping in Saskatchewan Canada and Paul's Mom is going to join us, so she gets the bed in the camper and the boys are going to sleep in the tent. They wanted to make sure they had all of the parts before they packed it away for the trip.
Quentin got a kit to put feathers on arrows for his birthday. We took a hike up the mountain behind Nondalton and he had a chance to test them out.
The guys spotted a couple of spruce hens and below you can see Quentin stalking one while everyone looks on.
He got it with the first shot!
Below David is carrying the spruce hen that Paul shot with a pistol and the one Quentin shot with his bow and arrow. He and Benjamin took turns carrying them until we got to the top of the mountain and Quentin dressed them out.
Last year for Quentin's 13th birthday I put together a nice slide show that you can see here. http://quiverfullofkids.blogspot.com/2010/06/quentins-13th-birthday.html
We are going to start traveling down the Alcan (Alaska Canadian Highway) today so please keep us in your prayers.
