Samuel's 15th Birthday

Sam's 15th birthday was at the end of July.  Here's a few photos to catch you up.
Sam just wanted roast and potatoes for his dinner.  Oh, and homemade bread.  Homemade bread only makes it's appearance around here every so often, so it was a treat.
Peter picked up a couple of books for Sam.  If you haven't heard of this one, October Sky, you might have heard of the movie.  Sam really liked the film because it was about a West Virginia boy, Homer Hickam, from a small coal mining town who became a famous author as well as a NASA engineer and helped put West Virginia on the map.  
The second book, below, is hunting and fishing tales by famous outdoorsman, Zane Grey.





Sam's gift from us was a recurve bow, for hunting, that he has been wanting.
He was very pleased with it.
He's been practicing with it and he's hoping to at least shoot at a deer or turkey this fall.

Sure was fun to celebrate our oldest.  He's such a contributer and a blessing to our home.

Yes, I echo JoAnn...it's so great to see you updating the blog again. We SO appreciate it. I like the new format too, bold and straight lines. There were a couple of really nice photos of Sam that I saved. He and Will are both looking so old and tall. Wonder if Benny will catch up?
