Anyway, I was lucky enough to have my friend Lindsey, a born and raised country girl, with me to show me how it's done. We just love Mike and Lindsey and their family.
My sister Indira was also spending some time with us, so we had eight kids under 8 (and only four adults) at first. None of the kids remembered how to bait and cast, if they had ever learned. It was a madhouse. We were very, very grateful when both sets of grandparents showed up to help.
Each of the kiddos, even our two year olds, caught fish. The fish were pretty much jumping right out of the pond and onto the hooks.
I took many, many pictures. Of course.

School has started again for pretty much everyone around here this week. We're starting up today. I hope you guys enjoy the end of the summer. It feels like fall already, doesn't it?
