Perhaps it is too much Robin Hood and other characters like them who have influenced them.
Due to this we have always had bows and arrows in our home.
Whether they are home made or as the children got older we bought bows for them.
In fact Braedon was the first to want a real bow and we got him a cool recurve one for his birthday.
This produced a real run on bows and we bought some cheaper ones for the children one Christmas.
Since then both Kynan and Saxon have better quality recure bows.
The problem has always been the losing or damaging of arrows and not living where we could get them easily.
Rogan was the one to start of the Archery phase again and as we drive past an archery supply store every day we go to town, it was relatively easy to slip in and pick up a few arrows to start the ball rolling again.
We set up the straw on a working pony and the children drew a figure on a piece of paper to aim at.
Even though we have all the bows we seemed to lose some of the strings in the move and so we only had one bow to use so everyone took turns.
I really enjoy the fact that we can do these things together and it is another outdoor activity we can share.
I can see an archery competition in our very near future!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
