What Home School Moms Do Over The Holidays*

I am Woman, hear me roar.  
Well, not roar, but see the (mostly) sanitized version of me butchering my first deer.  Yes I am girly enough to be wearing a glove.


Angie, my teacher and friend, is waiting patiently for me to get that skin off.


As any self-respecting home-educating mother I packed up the kids to watch/help.  It was a blast.  A gross and educational blast. 

 The first venison dish I cooked was awesome. 
Thanks to the hunters- Phil and William!

 Thanks to Angie and Jeff for lending us the use of their tree and for only laughing at me a little.



*I never thought about how much red-necks and home schoolers have in common...
