Several girls - "Ewwwwww! It's bleeding!"
Marcus - "Aidan's killed a squirrel!!! Cool!"
Several girls - "I'm done eating. I've lost my appetite!"
Aidan (rushing into the house) - "MOM!! YOU HAVE TO COME SEE THE SQUIRREL I SHOT!! Come take a picture!"
I dutifully congratulated him on his kill and managed to take a picture (without really looking at the victim), but I was not, under any circumstances, going to skin and cook that thing, despite much encouragement from my Facebook friends!
Now, Aidan insisted that I blog about his amazing squirrel hunting adventures and include a picture of the trophy, so, once again being the dutiful mother, here is the picture of Aidan's first squirrel.
Snickers, a squirrel killer herself, appears to be quite interested in Aidan's accomplishment!
