Excellent Fringe Benefits

I touched on the ‘Excellent Fringe Benefits’ of shooting our bows and our love for our grandchildren in my last post, ‘My Love for Our Bows’.  I would like to take this time to expand on those excellent fringe benefits that are so totally amazing.  I have watched as our grandchildren as they have begun to change.  I noticed things like the little ones were impatient, loud and unable to follow instructions.  After just a few trips out shooting I notice these same little ones were listening and focusing on their tasks.  All our grandchildren were much more patient with their fellow shooters whether it is their turn or they are waiting on their turn.  They all were more able to concentrate on the target, even if they were not the one shooting.  Everyone of our grandchildren was being much more respectful and responsible.   Where they used to shoot their arrows and then immediately go to retrieve them without any thought or concern for who else was shooting, or their own safety.   They now will wait patiently to take their turn and only after everyone is done with their turn and Grandpa has given the ‘all clear’ to them, then, they all run as fast as their legs will go to find all the arrows, laughing and giggling the entire time (family fun).
