Shooting Sports Invitationals

On Saturday, Sawyer, Victoria, Madeline and Garrett participated in the Flathead Shooting Sports Invitationals.  The kids did wonderful!

Sawyer shooting Olympic Recurve…

The boys started things out in archery, Sawyer shooting olympic recurve and Garrett shooting barebow.  This was Sawyer’s first year shooting in this discipline and Garrett’s second.

Garrett received a silver medal in his age group and Sawyer placed 6th in his.

Then the boys went on to shoot in air pistol…

Garrett won an amazing “Over-All” trophy for his age group with a score of 313 out of 400.  His first year shooting air pistol and his first competition!

Sawyer received a bronze medal in his age division!

Then it was on to archery again with the girls shooting barebow and Sawyer shooting primitive.

Sawyer shooting in barebow...

The day did have a few hiccups though, Maddie’s bow broke 2 days before the competition and she had to use a bow that she had never shot with.  So she didn’t shoot real well and ended up not placing.  Sawyer pinched his shooting finger in his bow the day before while stringing it and split the finger wide open.  It made for a bit of frustration on his part dealing with a hurt finger.

The kids did very well though, even Emma…

Tori ended up placing 2nd and receiving a silver medal in her age bracket, only loosing 1st place by 2 points!

They still have the Club Match and State is right around the corner!


It has officially hit here!  Spring fever and cabin fever, especially since this winter has been so pathetic.  The spring-like weather doesn’t help any either. It all  just has me impatiently waiting for the best time of the year…

Lambing Season!

It just makes us all so happy!

Too bad lambing season is still 7 weeks away.  😦    I think I will have to post a weekly tribute of my favorite lamb pictures until lambs start arriving.  That will hopefully hold me over until then. ;0)
