Gone Fishing





Here is how you do it. Put a plastic container in the water. Sprinkle some crackers over it. Wait until the fish comes to eat. Pull the container up. Take fish home. Put it in an empty pickle jar. Observe. Take pictures. Release the fish back into the pond next day. Wash your hands frequently.

    I loved activities like this when I was a kid. I thought kids nowadays were all into TVs and video games. It’s good to see some still out and about in the world. Great job, Mom!
