A Fish Tale
I loves me some fishin'!!! The girls and I got a chance to sneak off to the lake and do a little fishing this week. We went on Tuesday while Kim was at her Master's class (or while mommy's at college as the girls would say.) This last week I stumbled upon a lake that I never knew was there. It belongs to Missouri Conservation and so anyone can use it. The best part is that it is only 18 miles from our house and so it's not too far away. They have a floating and covered dock out there and so it is a perfect set-up for young ones like my girls to fish. They can fish without the sun beating down on them the whole time and fish love hanging around the shade of docks. We had a blast!!! We used the old school, tried and true method of one pole, one hook, one bobber, one worm. I brought along a pole but never even put a line in the water. When it was all done the girls had caught 9 bluegill and lost 3 times as many worms. We came home and the girls sat in amazement while I cleaned the fish and filleted them. We miss mommy on Tuesdays but it's been such a time of blessing for me to have a natural built-in day for just me and my girls. I have a feeling that many Tuesday afternoons will be spent on our new found lake.
