I’m so impressed with my son Micah. He made this bow himself from a stick of oak wood. He read up on how to make a custom long bow and then did it. I don’t think there is much more joy than this: seeing your son create.
I mean, really create. He had an idea, set his mind to the details, and he did it. He studied up on how to do it right. He ordered special cord and picked out the right piece of oak. He spent about 10 hours carving, sanding and stretching the wood.
Shooting the target yesterday, Micah was all smiles. “Wow, Dad. This is so much fun to shoot.”
I wonder, was it the joy of archery? Or was it that he was shooting with his own creation?
