In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.

In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

Shooting Sports

S participated in his first 4-H sponsored shoot today. He is doing air rifle which is really just a BB or a pellet gun. He mostly learned about safety, safety, safety. Then he was able to do a bench shoot, which is when you sit at a table and shoot at your target. He has really good aim, but we need to tweak the sighting on his gun a bit.

  1. Cool! The ol' group here has been doing archery, and we had MNO and DNO at the archery range. It was really fun to find out that the skills totally carry over from shooting firearms! Maybe not so much for my kids, but for me, LOL.
