Busy lives

Bet you are surprised to hear from us again.  I know it has been a while.  Although there is no excuse let me start with a little explanation.  First of all I have started a new job.  My hours are different and i am still getting used to it.  Buckman has had a lot going on as well with his classes that he is taking for a second masters and trying to get his house finished.  Add that to the garden, the duckpond and another BIG thing that we have going on it has our time strained.

The BIG thing is just that, it is big.  In many ways.  While i am not going to say what it is just yet, don't worry, once we get it going we will let y'all know. 

Now for the pond.  We have finally got water in it after duck season this year.  So while this year was alot better than last year it was still a bit of a flop.  I did not get to go to any big water this year.  But we did manage to kill a few ducks.

One of the big things that happened this season was our newest duck hunter in our group.  My little princess Molly.  She went with me a couple times this year and seems to love it.  She points out birds coming in (although at 2 1/2 years old she points out any bird and is still learning what ducks look like.)  and she thinks it is hilarious when i shoot.

We have also put up a few wood duck boxes around the pond.  We are now trying to find something that we can plant without having to drain the pond so we do not have the same problems that we did last time.
