New Boy Scout

Last week our youngest bridged from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and earned his arrow of light award. This was a fantastic experience and we're really excited about his new troop.

First Fish

On Friday afternoon as I was driving home from work I received an urgent call from my wife; "Stop at the pond!" Our youngest had gone down to the pond near our house to do some fishing and unlike the dozens of times before was met with success rather than disappointment. I arrived at the pond just as they were about to release the 10" Tilapia back to the relative safety of the pond. I'm not an avid fisherman by any stretch of the imagination, but I can say I've never had a bad time fishing. As a result of his success, my wife and I went out for licenses and hope to add some quality fishing time in South Carolina to our list of family recreational activities.
