Default Fishing

A while back, while cleaning my shop (garage). My son caught site of my fishing poles, behind a stack of oak, and covered with sawdust. I used to do quite a bit of fishing. Well, one thing led to another, and he wanted to give it a try. While purchasing a license, and assembling my gear, my younger daughter had been following me, assuming, she was going too. I couldn't tell her no, and they caught some very small perch. So now they are "hooked". In the pics are my 9 year old son and my 6 year old daughter. I also have a 12 year old daughter,but she is beyond the age of wanting to go fishing with dad. Now I have to split my limited woodworking time with taking the kids fishing. But it's worth it.

Rusty it is more than worth it. All too soon they will be grown up and what will they remember but a dad that took time for them. This isn't just important for them but for your grandchildren too. Some say kids just need "quality time". Well just have that person go to their favorite steak house and order the best steak and get a one ounce anything and have the manager say, "it isn't quantity but it sure is quality" and be satisfied with that!! Kids need quantity quality time and you sure are right on the money with that one!! Keep at it, when they are gone, and all too soon they will be, you can do more woodworking then. You will never feel bad doing the right thing so have at it with those lovely young ones. BTW those kids sure look like this was one special time!!

Give your children plenty of encouragement Rusty and one day they'll achieve results like these. A good friend sent this shot a few days ago of his son.
