Cannot wait until I can start taking my own boy hunting.
These are my people. The kids that I grew up with that I used to hunt squirrels and rabbits with in the woods behind our house. Now they’ve grown up and are teaching their kids the joys of providing meat for the family table.
To say I’m proud of the man he has become is an understatement. I am humbled by the sacrifices he and his family have made throughout his 21 years of service to our nation.
Happy birthday to my nephew, Mykael, who turns a whopping 11 years old today.
He has no idea how much I envy him sometimes (did I mention he’s a scratch golfer, too?). There’s definitely something to be said for living the simple life of a hardworking, gun- and Bible-toting (and fishing pole-toting, too), good ol’ boy.
Seeing these pictures today reminded me that this is where I come from; these are my people.
