Will 2005

Here are some various pictures of Will taken during 2005


Will's Bow Project

Will decided he wanted to make an bow and arrow since he is a big Lord of the Rings fan so he set out to a working bow and arrow.   He found all the suitable pieces and with a little bit of technical assistance from Dad he got it put together.  He has real duck feathers on his arrow that he collected from a coyote kill we found will on a hike at Guajome Lake.

Shortly after he finished the project we had an "Extensive" talk on archery safety and so far it seems the lesson has taken hold.

Will crashed out on the morning of May 21st, 2005

Will Learning to Surf

Will had been saving up his allowance and gift money for quite some time and decided to buy a used surf board.  Here are some shots from his first day out with the board on May 30th, 2005.  The few days later actually got up fully upright on the board.  Unfortunately, I was at work when it happened so no pictures of that, however I sure there will be plenty of those in the future.  I see myself in the market for a long board and a wetsuit here in the near future.
