Papa Russ took us fishing the other day about 15 minutes away from the ranch (at a beautiful fishing hole) and the kids caught 11 fish. We had so much fun and it brought back so many childhood memories for me. I haven't gone fishing since I married and moved to California. I had forgotten how peaceful and rewarding it is.
I noted a few things about my children:
Abraham is very impatient...he would cast out and real in, cast out and real in. It worked for him though, he caught 2 fish.
Gabrielle is very grossed out by the whole thing, but when she puts her mind to it, she can do just about anything...she also caught 2 fish!
Ezra is very annimated and every little thing about the fishing trip was exciting to him. He had us all laughing the entire time! With a little assistance, he caught 2 fish.
Isabelle....ah Isabelle, she is so very patient and quiet and would sit there even when her line floated to the shore. Her patience and perserverance paid off with 3 fish!
Sophie loves her papa and was content to sit in his lap and touch all the fish.
