A Right of Passage

On Valentine's Day we bought Eli and BB Gun which just cracks me up because only in the South is it appropriate to show your love for someone by giving them a weapon.  Ha!

Eli didn't ask for a gun, but Eric insisted that he would love it, and he was right.  Eli was so excited and promptly ran outside to shoot at Coke cans. 

While this is certainly a "right of passage" for a boy, I can't help but marvel at the "right of passage" this for a father.  Just as I dream of the day I can take Ellie to Miss Kentucky and share that joy with her, Eric grew up wanting a son to share his passion with.  

I have a hunch that next year when quail season rolls around, these boys of mine will find themselves going hunting most Saturdays, and I couldn't be happier for them!
