David's First Fish!

We went fishing at Grandpa's farm last week. I just wanted my kids to have the experience of fishing and I really wasn't expecting to catch anything (except algae and a few fallen branches). I just got some fake bait (because I really wasn't feeling up to digging for bait and picked up some little cheap fishing pole from Wal-mart but lo, and behold!


I helped reel him while the kids were just screaming with excitement.

It was a gorgeous big mouth bass!

Sweet Aunt Marlo helped unhook him and held him up so I could get some pictures. David really wanted to keep it, but in the end we let him go so he can get bigger and we can catch him again next time. 

How many kids can put that in their homeschool portfolio?
