Gone Fishing

bobber.jpgI mentioned in my previous post that I was rendering the compilation of photos (and sounds) from the pow wow yesterday. In case you didn’t notice it over there in the side bar, you can click this link which will take you to YouTube so you can see it. Make sure you click the HD button so you see the awesomeness of the photos. (If you are a friend of mine on Facebook watch it over there, Facebook video totally rawks).

We got an early start today and we were fishing before noon. The boys were so excited to be fishing again, and I was shocked. Shocked at how much they remembered from last year, and shocked at how much they could do this year. Gone are the days when daddy has to bait the hook. Gone are the days when daddy has to help cast their line. From the moment we arrived at the park they were capable fishermen and genuine sportsmen.

They complimented each other on casting, they assisted each other when needed, and most of all, they had a great time drowning worms for several hours. In total we caught seven fish. I should say, in total our oldest and youngest caught seven fish. The baby of the family totally surprised me today. Baiting his own hook, getting worm juice all over his hands, and casting his own line. The look on his face when he landed his very first fish was quite memorable.

Tomorrow will be a busy day following up with recruiters from last week, touching bases with those interviews I had, and searching out the latest new jobs that were posted over the weekend.

Until then,
