Old Fashioned Archer

The girls spent the morning with Granny.  Kate started talking about bows and arrows and how she wished she had them.  Granny told her that when she was little, she and her siblings and cousins used to make their own.  Katherine loved this idea, so Granny helped her cut and peel a green stick, tie twine on it, and search for straight twigs for arrows.
Katherine was pleased with the results.
Delighted, in fact!
Rachel was impressed, too.
And Kate's homemade bow and arrow is the envy of the neighborhood.
Even if she hasn't mastered shooting an arrow through the basketball hoop.  And Kate?
She's one happy archer.
