I've always loved that my married name is Bowman
and the symbolism that provides of an archer.
My husband and I have talked for some time about enrolling Ella
in an archery class,
and when one became available earlier this month
we signed her up!
It was a two hour course, the first hour specifically on the eleven steps
of shooting a bow and arrow and the next hour practicing.
It turned out to be a small class, so Ella had plenty of time to practice.
She thoroughly enjoyed this experience,
so now we are researching which bow
is the best investment.
Ella is strong and athletic, but doesn't gravitate toward traditional organized sports,
so finding outlets like this is wonderful for her.
