Fishing

My son has recently shown an interest in fishing.

Oh. My. Gosh.

An interest in a sport! I’m SO on this!! Something that will get him outside! YAY! THANKFULLY, the Lord has placed a friend in my life who has been immensely helpful.

And the internet. Thank You Jesus for the internet.

I have spent HOURS watching videos and reading information, learning as MUCH as I can. I haven’t fished much in my life and when I did, I didn’t have much interest, didn’t know much about it and was just generally bored. I’ll tell you what – when you take the time to show a genuine interest in something and to learn about it, it sure becomes exciting and interesting!!

My son was learning about a couple of different fish from some wild animal cards he got from a local store. One he learned about was the Largemouth Bass. He decided he wants to fish for bass. Woahwaitwhat?!?! Doesn’t he know those are some of the hardest fish to catch?! Yes. yes he does.

So we are going to try. Some day. For now, we are starting slow and local. We fished twice this week and caught nothing, but my boy is not discouraged or slowing down. We are headed out bright and early tomorrow and he will try again. We will try again.

Rods & reels are ready by the door. Chairs are in the car already. We will load up and head out spending a day at a local lake with some other fun stuff to do. The lake was stocked today, so we will most likely catch something. But it will be good practice!

This will be a new journey for us and already I know The Lord is teaching us a lot through it. Patience. There is more beneath the surface than we will ever be able to see.

I will be sharing what we learn here. And sharing pictures, I hope! Pictures of my kids and I holding fish we caught!!

On another note, I’m gonna try to not be so absent from here on out. It’s been a really rough month, but I need to make this happen. The Lord has given me a lot to share and I need to share it!!

Happy Weekend!!
