Gage with Dad's deer that they shot last week. I hadn't noticed before that the deer was laying in our sled! Scott took the sled in case he needed to pull Gage, but it looks like Gage was out of luck unless he wanted to sit on a dead, bloody deer carcass!
Scott, Gage and the dead deer. You'll be happy to know that the stupid thing isn't hanging over the patio anymore. Scott finally got it all cut up and processed yesterday. He has a friend with a meat grinder, so he made several pounds of venison burger. He mixed it with a little fattier beef so it won't be so lean and dry. He was so proud of it and wanted me to come look at it while he had it out on the counter. I told him if he wanted me to eat any of it, then to please not make me look at it! Raw meat just disgusts me. I have a hard enough time cutting up chicken breasts and mixing up hamburger to make meat loaf. YUCK!
Tomorrow starts a new week, and a full week back to school. I turned the page in my planner/calendar and it's written all over already, so I believe we have a busy week ahead. We will attend Emma's parent/teacher conferences tomorrow right after school, so I will be glad to get those out of the way. We have a girlfriend of Emma's coming home from school with us 2 days this week for a play date. Her Dad, who usually picks her up from school, is out of town for a few days so her Mom asked if she could schedule a couple of play dates. She is one of the girls in our Daisy group and she was also in Emma's Jr. K and Preschool class at the YMCA. I haven't yet gotten my schedule for the other 2 that come home with me, so I may have a full house if they fall on the same days! The more the merrier, right? NOT!
