Some of the guys at the fire house love fishing. Charlie's been off work (work related injury) and has spent some time with his buddies when they've gone out fishing. He used to go fishing occasionally years ago, before we met.
Charlie went to Walmart while the kids were in school yesterday and bought them each a fishing rod. Tabytha has been fishing before, but, John and Jessi have never been fishing. They were super excited to try it.
Charlie took us to a pond close to our house after the kids got home from school. Hooks were batted with worms and lines were cast out into the water. The kids were having a great time. Of course the first few casts didn't get any bites from the fish and they started getting discouraged. A little more time passed and Tabytha got her first bite. She hooked her first catch of the evening.
A little while later John caught his very first fish. He was ecstatic! Laughing and cheering his catch. He didn't even mind tossing it back in the water. Jessi wasn't able to catch anything, but, she still had a great time. When all was said and done Tabytha had caught a total of 4 fish and John was content with the 1.
