Tom really loves to fish. Me... eh, not so much. Living on a lake has given Tom lots of opportunity to enjoy this past time, and he likes to share it with the kids. The bigs were teenagers and pretty busy with their own activities by the time we moved out here, but the littles are just ripe for the picking. Last summer, Thomas was a little nervous about pulling slimy finned creatures out of the lake for fun and relaxation, but this year he has become quite the little fisherman. He loves when he and daddy are the only ones home and they go down to the lake to fish together.

Casting from the dock and waiting patiently.

He moved down the shore a little ways and reeled one in.

Thomas can even remove the fish from the line and throw it back by himself.  Pretty good for a kindergartner!
