Happy Birthday Sarah!


Today my daughter, Sarah, turns 14. She has changed a lot during the last year. Slowly she is changing from a tempetuous child into a young woman. I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. Did she answer "a new rifle" or "a camo hat, some face paint, insulated coveralls, bullets, or a hunting jacket"? NO.

This is the same little girl that got her first deer this year. She has been wanting a rifle forever but things change. I want to hold on to her and enjoy hunting together with her and the rest of the kids as long as I can. I hope that she will not give it up and we can hunt together without all the distractions that a young teenager faces.
What did she want?
She wanted cool clothes and Paris Hilton perfume.
Is it me?

Happy Birthday, Sarah!

I hope you know you'll always be your daddy's little girl, no matter how old and grown up you get to be...

Even if you do wanna smell like Paris Hilton in a treestand.

Rex, good luck with that one...

Rex,
We have an eleven year old, and I am not looking forward to the eventual growing up portion of her life.
But as they say it is what you have taught them that will determine how they come out. I'm certain that you have done a fine job of raising her and that she will make you proud!

Regards,
Albert A Rasch

Good looking daughter there Rex. Good luck to you, buddy. My older daughter will be 15 in a couple of weeks so I know a little about what you're in for. That's why I say good luck and may the force be with you.
