My Husband the Sheep Hunter

Well Jarrett was at it again, home decorating. Or as he would call it sheep hunting. Jarrett was set for a ten day solo hunt in the far off mountains of Alaska. He was flown in prior to season, found this guy and got him on opening day. So our newest addition to the wall decorations will be ready before Christmas. Jarrett also got a moose tag on the air force base in Anchorage, a brown bear tag for spring on Kodiak Island, in November he will be hunting sitka blacktail on Kodiak Island with Reese, and he is trying to find a way up the haul road for a caribou. So do you think this guy gets to hunt enough? I just keep thinking of when the boys are old enough they will all be going together, how sweet.

Love and sheep meat,

Prayers for Jake

A friend and son of one of our favorite Alaskan families fell while sheep hunting with his dad on August 18th. Jake is still in ICU, for those of you who know him and would like to check his daily progress you can do so at How is Jake?

This is a photo of Jake and Luke being "tough guys".
Please keep Jake and his very special family in your thoughts and prayers.

Caleb finished his session of vacation bible school. He had a great time, he came home with lots of crafts and learned lots of new bible song. His favorite song is the Hip Hip Hippopotamus song! He received a bible for bringing the most friends in his class. On the last day he was pretty tuckered so he said, "Mom, I'm a little tired... maybe I should not go to PBS today!" Ah, but mom became very accustom to having Caleb in school from 9:30 to 12.

We love to have company. I love going to all the touristee places. I love living in a place that people love to come visit. (In the summer). Anyways we had a great visit with Richard and Carol. We visited late into the night. Richard enjoyed the access to high speed internet. What a sweet couple.

I think ya'll should come and visit so you can make it into the blog.... What do you think???


Caleb was giving this classical snowmachine a try. We were in Talkeetna, I love this little town, it must be the Humboldt hippy in me.
