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?
