I have been too busy to post and I have much left to do. I am going scrapbooking at my church this afternoon. This is a great opportunity for me to get motivated about getting caught up on my scrapbooks. My blog is like my on-line scrapbook! I think that’s one reason I enjoy it.
I was going through pictures last night and found this pic of me when I was six. It is my first fish! I remember when I caught it. My dad was on the other side of the lake and I started yelling for help. He ran around the water and helped me bring it in! It seemed soooo ginormous to me!
We are going to take the girls fishing there in a couple of weeks. It’s out on his property where I grew up. If the weather isn’t too hot, James is going to pitch a tent and camp with the girls. Maybe they will catch their first fish on the same waters that I did! I’ll be sure to take my camera.
We camped by Mom and Dad D’s pond last weekend. Maybe I will post some pics of that too. It’s so fun to feed their catfish. They come right to the waters edge and you can throw the food in their mouths! There are some BIG boys in there! Dad D is proud of his ‘pets’! Jessica almost petted one. Instead we got soaked with pond water when he got spooked and slapped his tail on the water!
Before the weekend was over, all the girls were swimming in the muddy pond. I used to swim in ponds but I don’t like to anymore. Janet was quick to throw on her suit and get in with the girls! They were in their Sunday dresses! Amazingly they came clean!
How about you? I’d love to hear your fish stories! This is the time of year that brings back fishy memories!
