It has been way too long since I last posted here. Many things happened, both good and bad (mostly good). I will be adding some entries over the next couple days and try to “catch up.”
Caleb graduated from high school in December and joined Shakira at BYUI in January. He recently received his mission call and will be serving in the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh Mission. He reports to the missionary training center on May 7th.
Shakira took a job in Alaska for the summer. She has to be in Anchorage on May 4th.
Needless to say, we will likely celebrate Mother’s Day a week or two early this year.
Cazadora is now 11 months and a week old. We had a great first hunting season. VJP is right around the corner (She runs in Boise 1 month from today). …And just to make things interesting Caza turned into a teenager about 3 weeks ago (I am sure that I will elaborate later).
Mid to late summer, Caza broke her back right foot. That brought training/exposure to a standstill for some time. I must say, though, that she met all the steps along the path of recovery about twice as fast as the vet predicted she would. Even though she is all love, she is very tough and does not want to miss out on the fun.
In August I was asked to teach part time at the local high school. I made arrangements to quit one job but ended up working 3 jobs for most of the fall/winter. Unfortunately, that cut into my hunting time and didn’t leave much time for blogging either.
Now that life has settled down to a dull roar, and we are no more crazy than Cluffs usually are, I again pick of the pen, figuratively speaking.
