Wisconsin – at the home front

Mini-me and Munchie like the outdoors and like to catch anything wildlife related.

The neighbor, Harper, is a trapper and they had been having trouble with an invasion of chipmunks that were tearing up the houses and yards. Munchie wanted to learn how to trap them, so Harper loaned her several traps, and showed her how and where to set them.

Here is one of her traps, set and ready to go. She couldn’t wait to get home and check them!

I think she would enjoy trapping around here, and I know Harper was thrilled to share his passion with her!

  1. Your kids sure are cute. I am not surprised that they are so comfortable with outdoors activities and nature. You are doing such a great job raising self reliant children who will be responsible adults when they grow up. God bless you and your DH. Wish there were more parents like you two.

    • Thank you, Dar. We are doing our best, and I just pray that God uses them for his purposes and raises them up to be those responsible adults in spite of us! Being a parent has to be the toughest job I have ever had. Thanks for the encouragement!
