Her Only Chance...

Our daughter's only chance of learning how to do outdoorsy things is to have other people teach her. Luckily, we have friends with these skills. 

After dinner, Elda's husband Jason took the girls fishing out in the backyard to the pond.

Here they're watching him put the worm on the hook.

I packed spring clothes, since it has been so warm here. I did not even bring a coat or a jacket for her. Luckily Elda had an extra one.

This mother goose was close behind us sitting on her eggs. She was very overprotective and kept hissing at us. Luckily no one got bit, although we did get chased away several times. We learned to give her a wide berth.

They caught at least ten different little fish.

Bee helped reel this one in. She loved to touch the fish and thought it was funny when he threw them back in.

Here she collected a whole bunch of sticks and gathered them into a pile. Then she played goose and sat on her eggs.
It only took an hour, but it was so fun to see the girls' excitement over something so easy and simple. Oh, and I loved how green they keep the grass at this complex. It was beautiful. It was also cold.

Ha - I've seen you guys all grease headed and smelling like smoke from camping. Who says you're not outdoorsy! Looks like fun!

She also has Christian! We'll have to take her fishing this summer when you're here to visit.
