I wanted her to play soccer and she was good, but I screwed that up.  Archery is a choice she made.  I am only trying to help her understand the sport (see my deep expertise in this post) and if she likes it, support her and maybe push her along if needed.  Still, it is archery and this is sort of a nerdy girl.  One grandparent thinks it is hunting.  Another grandparent thinks it is not a girl thing.  Yes, different generations, but it is part of her choice since she doesn’t come from a long line of archery enthusiasts.  At JOAD, I am surprised how many girls and how many left handers there are.

To confront it, we took the target and practiced at Grandmas house,  it went well.
