Remembering This Moment: Coon & Possum Huntin

Remembering This Moment--a weekly series.  Read more here and here.
What moment will you remember this week?
_________________________________


What?  You can't tell what these 3 are up to?



They're huntin for coons and possums, of course!
See that bat hanging from the tree?  The red string trailing across the yard?
That's the trap.



But just in case the trap doesn't work, they've got their nets.



And they know how to use them.



Proper attire is important when you are huntin wild critters.



And just so you know, Lil is not demonstrating the proper net technique for either coon or possum catchin.





Someday my kids are going to be so mad about these pictures.
But I am going to love them forever.
I don't want to forget the days of simple, sweet childhood.
When they are are fully absorbed in games of make believe and don't give a hoot about what anyone else thinks.
It's bliss.
I am so in love with these weirdos.


Take some time and remember a moment this week.
If you want to be a part of this series, send me a link and I'll post it.  I'd love to see the moments that make up your days. 
Love from,
Greta

I love this too...we had a similar day two summers ago with yarn strung all over the back yard. But I think they were trying to catch fairies!!:)
Enjoy the day
