Shelbys Invade the Public School

We left Thursday evening to go to WM to visit our family, have Cade's 9th birthday party, and make some decisions regarding Rob's grandmother. Friday, we went to my Aunt's school to visit her during the day. She is a middle school P.E. teacher. By the way, my mom is a high school librarian and my uncle is a high school teacher as well. They were learning archery during this time so Ian, Tate, Cai, Abram and Emma were able to watch one of her classes. They were also put to work retrieving arrows after each round.

It is a really nice and clean school.

Some of the students shooting their bow.

These were their arrows in the targets.

Retrieving the arrows.

After her class was finished, the children were able to try shooting the bows a few times. Here is Cai and Abram trying to figure it out.

Aunt Pat was letting her students shoot for candy. The team that shot the most arrows in the target won candy.

After shooting the bow the children were able to shoot basketball in the gym in between the class change. Most of those pictures did not turn out because I was using someone else's camera and I didn't know how to use it. So this is one of the only ones that turned out decent.

For the privacy of my mother, I will not be able to answer this question especially since I don't know who asked. Thanks for your understanding!

Thanks for understanding. She is a librarian in a high school in Ouachita Parish. You would only know her if you came from that area. I am working on a post that will have a picture of her on there if your interested. By the way, I would love to know what friend we have in common.
