The Big One

It was very early, perhaps even the first day of fishing season, but the kids gathered their gear and captured worms with great enthusiasm.
Worms on, lines cast, bobbers floating just so, they waited as patiently as possible for a bite.
When finally it came, the only bite of the day, it was just a scrawny little guy, full of enthusiasm for eating, I guess.

We left our fishing hole with nothing but memories, dreaming of the next time, when perhaps we will land the big one.
We know he's out there somewhere...

What a great adventure even without catching the big one! Wishing them many happy fishing excursions over the next several months.

They will remember those days for the rest of their lives.
