Welcome to Montana and a day with Daniel Boone

Remind me when it is hot and I want to go swimming in the river to cool off that this is what lurks in it's waters. I hate snakes and this pike looks a little snakish to me!! This bad boy is 28" long and weighed 5 lbs. Check out those teeth. They are really sharp too, just ask Alex(Daniel).

Daniel shot this "coon" with one shot out of one of our trees. It weighed 19 pounds!! 12 of that was from OUR dog food. Dang critters(I now get really annoyed with deer, birds, and little critters, they destroy everything!!). Daniel has also been hunting gophers and rock chucks. A local rancher has put a bounty on them. .50cents each. The other day they
made $ 22.00. This kid is total Montanan!! Ask us to tell you about the 22 gophers he shot and put in a 5 gallon bucket and then forgot to turn them in the next day to the rancher..... SOUP anyone? YUCKY!!!!! Just let your imagination run wild on that one and it still won't come close to the real thing. GAG!! Soup that moves. And the stench...WOW.

Wow it has been so long since we have posted I forgot how. I found this one saved as a draft and figured I should resurrect it. Mickayla mutual class made some hats for newborns and infants for a service project one night and she brought them home to show us. Tasha decided she wanted to join in hte fun so she and Mickayla made a bunch of hats one weekend. Then Alex wanted to join in and of course I didn't want to be left out soooo we have the 300 hats of Bartholomew Sorenson. Ok maybe not 300 but we made over 30 of the little buggers. I am sooo proud of my girls and their enthusiasm to serve.

Hooray for Alex!

He did it! He did it! Yeaaaa he did it!

Alex finally, after long hard work, received his Duty to God!
This award takes 6 years to earn! He received this back in March.

We are so proud of you! *sniff sniff*
