What did you do?
We took part in the 2019 Liberty Hunt in Michigan. The Liberty Hunt is a special weekend each year for youth under 16 years, the disabled, and military veterans to deer hunt using bow, shotgun, or rifle.
As successful hunters, we helped to fill our family’s freezer with meat for the winter.
Finley harvested a seven-point buck, and Ginny harvested an eight-point buck within a half-hour of each other.
What organization recognized the achievement?
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources provided our licenses, and our pictures were entered in our local newspaper, the Houghton Lake Resorter. In addition, Michigan State Senator Curt VanderWall sent each of us a congratulatory card in the mail!
How did homeschooling help you achieve your goal?
Homeschooling provided us the extra time to scout out the woods, set up our blinds, gather our gear, and target practice in preparation for this weekend hunt.
What are your interests?
Finley and Ginny enjoy reading, cross-country skiing, swimming, hunting, and spending time with friends. Also, Ginny loves to spend time in the kitchen, cooking, and baking.
What are you inspired to do with your life?
Finley would like to become a nutritionist and is looking forward to the prospect of raising a family in a rural setting.
Ginny feels called to religious life and is currently interested in exploring religious orders that involve teaching Catholic youth.
What are your favorite subjects, and why?
Finley’s favorite subject is science because she enjoys doing experiments and discovering aspects of the natural world around her.
Ginny’s favorite subject is music because she likes its calming effect.
