 my String bean is not a baby any more...
he is growing up too fast for this OMA....
he is learning to shoot a bow....
his Mom and Dad shoot bows...
Pawpaw is showing him how he does it...
all the while String bean is telling Pawpaw how it should be done...

 he showed up this morning...
one pants leg partially tucked in his boots...
the same way his Pawpaw looked when I met him...
always one pant leg partially in his boot...
never on purpose...just the way it ended it...
one of the things that endeared him to me...

 today was a busy day...
full of BOY things....
bows and arrows...
rocks...
 Hill climbing with his dog....

 Athena was with him all the way....

 Next was putting on his tool belt...
filling it up with his tools...
 I've got work to do OMA....

 the girls got in on the action....
Athena was trying to borrow a few tools...

 then they decided to go for a pick up ride....
 next step a little carpenter work.....
yep a real hammer and a real nail...
he worked really hard getting that nail through the wood...
Pawpaw got it started for him....
he worked on it for a good 30 minutes...
only hit himself once...
Oma gave a few whacks...
while he rested his arm....
he finished it up...
very proud of himself...
all this was done before lunch time...
after lunch he rode his tricycle and Oma rode her bicycle...
we had a fun filled BOY day....
on a beautiful Texas day.....
