Wordful Wednesday - Gone Fishin'

It's Wednesday.... half way through the week.... the last.day.of.school. WOW, where does the time go??? I just got back from the boy's school, where I watched my Ethan "graduate" 5th grade..... WOW, where does the time go??? I will now have T-W-O middle schoolers....

I just spent the last 45 minutes crying through the whole ceremony.... watching my boy walk on stage and get his awards.... thinking about how big and mature he is now..... remembering him as a baby, toddler, young boy, and now a pre-teen.... WOW, where does the time go???

Anyway, Wednesday also means "Wordful Wednesday".... I have been a bad blogger and have missed the past few Wednesdays.... but I.AM.BACK.

Because of everything that has been going on personally.... home stuff, end of the year stuff, and losing my friend...I haven't shared my Key West photos...sorry.... but you understand, right??
Today, I will share our "Fishing Tale".....

We drove the boat out to a small reef/rock area where we knew their would be loads of fish....threw out our chum and baited our lines....
Angie and Joseph went first.......

...and one after the other they were just pulling them up....
and up....
and up....
Then I took my turn and I thought "this looks too easy....the kids can do it and I should have no problem, right???" WRONG....
I tried and tried and tried.... I threw out my line over and over again.... I would feel the fish nibble on the bait... I would get so excited and then try to "set the hook", and that's where it all went downhill... I just could.not.get.it.
But I didn't give up.... and after 10 or so tries (yes, that is embarassing), I finally caught a fish.... and a grouper at that....
It was too small to keep....and I never did catch another one.... but I did catch one.... and I will take it!! :)
