Sometimes it's nice to be forced to stop what you're doing, all the to-do lists, and just enjoy a lazy afternoon. That's just what we did this Sunday.
Mary's Girl Scout troop met at a park to learn how to fish. It was her very first time and she caught TWO.
For the first hour and a half, the girls were taught all the technicalities of fishing. Then they had about 40 minutes to fish. They were using a completely different rod than what I grew up using and I hadn't any idea how to work it. Mary learned well though!
It was so relaxing and exciting. It brought back lots of memories of fishing with my Dad at the lake. He had me play hookie a few times from school to go with him. That stopped when I started catching more than him!
And after a few hours of the hot, sweaty weather, nothing beats a cold treat.
I may not be looking forward to the heat, but I am looking forward to the unscheduled and leisurely days of summer.
