Lazy Sunday Afternoon

Mitchell has recently expressed some interest in fishing...one of his new little friends does it often and i think told mitch about it who(M) then thought this sounded like a good idea. Chris used to fish all the time as a kid with his dad and alone, and he took this as a opportunity to share that experience with Mitch.
They bought all that they needed and then went out to a local pond to get their fishing licenses. Mitch could not wait to get started. Chris had him practice casting a few times in the parking lot before he set him loose on the fish, and after two practice casts Chris' words were this, "He is a natural". The kid is very coordinated when it comes to sporty things.
For a little boy that can usually not hold still or be quiet he did this calmly for hours, literally. Once they finished at one pond they headed to a nearby reservoir. And fished some more. Maybe this is going to teach him a little patience. NO, they did not catch anything. Maybe next time. The first thing Mitch asked me this morning was could we go fishing again.
Even Avery got in on things. She patiently waited for her turn, got a lesson from dad on casting and off she went. What was i doing all this time? Well, I found a nice shady spot nearby so that i could watch, took out a magazine and read my lazy afternoon away.

How wonderful! I learned to fish from my dad and it's such a wonderful memory of going out in a canoe the first time. It was a little too exciting when we actually got a fish though... I real boat probably would've been better :)

I could actually fish before I even started kindergarten...Go Mitchie and Avery! And good for Mommy hanging out with some reading material!

Seriously what's up with the word ver today? I'm pretty sure these aren't even letters.
