We interrupt the highlights to bring you something rather current!

Jamie really enjoys fishing and so that’s something that he has been glad to be able to share with Thad now. We gave Thad a little kids fishing pole for his birthday and he has been able to go out fishing with Jamie 3-4 times now. The first time they went to a couple of fishing spots a few minutes’ drive away. Thad was able to catch two fish on his first fishing expedition!

The proud fisherman--the two Thad caught are on the left
Then Jamie took Thad down to the little stream that runs right under the driveway of the house we are staying in, and Thad caught another fish or two—don’t think I got pictures of that one somehow. But the third trip Jamie’s mom came to watch and she was able to corral Thea while I took some video clips and pictures. (Once again at the little stream that runs under our driveway.)

This is the fish Thad caught (on the fishing expedition show in the photos below)

The fishermen at work
Thea is excited to try fishing too!
The REALLY funny part is how excited Thea is to take her turn at fishing. She is only 20 months old—but sure seems to catch on to things quickly! She told Jamie after the first time Thad went fishing: “fishing [with] Daddy” like she really wants to go. And the last time they went without her she stood at the door and cried and cried. Yesterday Jamie went fishing with his brother, and then was talking later about the good fishing hole they’d found and that it would probably be a good spot that he could even take Thea. Well even though she was playing in the other room, she stopped what she was doing right away and ran into the room where he was talking, saying, “fishing Daddy!” Jamie had to tell her that they wouldn’t go today, but maybe another time. Tonight we ate the fish he had caught and she must’ve eaten at least 2 whole fish (about 9” long), just kept eating and asking for more. These were some nice brook trout that have the pink-y color of salmon. They’re a pretty good fish. She seems to be a pretty fish-y girl!
