It's called "Center Shot." And it's an archery program. It teaches participants of any age about archery, then they get to shoot at targets.
At the first round, Chase, Chance, Chloe and Camden all participated. Really enjoyed it.
So when it was offered for the second round, we decided to let the rest of kiddos have a try. Now this didn't come with some concern, Phoebe for her poor vision --a bow with an arrow, in her hands!! Yes, we did MOM.
And Paisley's weakened wrists were a concern for her. But the program is geared to EVERYONE being able to do this. And having them try this out has been a wonderful thing for the girls.
Because both Paisley and Phoebe, as well as Kat have had a great time and are doing well.
Paisley and Phoebe's targets are closer, but they are not the only ones using closer targets and no other modifications have been needed. They use a lighter weight bow, but again, they aren't the only ones and it's not really an issue since the bows come in all different colors and sizes.
It's not something we would have ever thought of that would allow the girls to be the same as other kids and not just participate but to do well within the activity. But it has been very successful for them.
Each child has an adult "helper" to maintain safety, and guide all the children throughout the activity. The kids get to have snack and a devotional time in between the groups who are shooting.
They also get a shirt, the first time they were tie dye, this time they were bright orange.
Do you see how proud a certain "someone" (Paisley) is that she got ALL 4 of her arrows on her target?
It's been a blessing to have this for all of our children. Such a great program:)
