Another one bites the dust...

Elijah killed another snake today.

I would have never seen this snake on the tree. Elijah may have eye problems and have 5+ lenses, but he can spot a snake.

At first he was standing there shooting it with his BB gun. I was afraid he was too close and the BBs were going to bounce back and hit him in the eye, so I told him to get a shovel. I meant the shovel with a long handle!

Okay I got a little chuckle out of that after I typed that. I was afraid he'd get hit with a BB, but yet I was letting him kill a snake and I had no idea what kind of snake it was at the time.

It was just a baby rat snake. Elijah so wanted it to be a poisonous snake. He was a little disappointed when we said it was only a rat snake.

It really is funny. Dakota and I stand inside looking out the door while the 9 year old kills the snakes.
