I got 100%!!!

...on my Hunter's Education course!!! I can now officially hunt...even without an adult!!! I was like a giddy school girl when I got 100 and I ran to the back of the classroom where Matt was waving my test whispering-cheering that I got 100! The class was Friday night from 5-9pm and Saturday from 9am-4ish. Of course, I was the only girl except for the 14 year old so the two of us made up less than 1% of the class, the rest of the class were all males in their 20s or 30s and married (I'm into checking out the ring fingers) then the other males in the classroom were dads with their kids and from what I could tell, all four dads in the room were divorced (I picked up on it from pick-up/drop-off, convos and no rings). Just an observation...since Matt and I were the only married couple, we got picked on a lot but it was all fun. Here are two stories that were funny:

Instructor: What is a law?
14 year old Girl: It's like a rule that tells us what we can and can't do.
Instructor: And who makes rules?
14 year old Girl: Well, my mom makes them at my house.

Is that not too funny? Here's the other story, the instructor was trying to make a point about not littering and leaving your area better than you found it.

Instructor: So you take out that soda bottle there with you when you hunt?
11 year old Boy: Yes (not understanding what he was getting at).
Instructor: Well, what do you do with that soda bottle? Leave it?
11 year old Boy: Well, we recycle at our house.

You could just see the relief from the dad when he said that. It was a pretty boring class but parts were entertaining and...I passed with a 100!!! Here is a picture of my badge and button!

Now I just have to learn patience for when it actually comes to hunting...

Yay! What are you going to hunt, deer? My hubs loves to go hunting once a year. Are you gonna hunt together? The couple that hunts together...doesn't kill each other...or is it the couple that hunts together stays together :0
