 On Saturday my Mom and I were walking...
at our favorite park...
we noticed how many perch there were...
all sizes...lot's and lot's of them...
I told Hubby about it...
so we made a date with Stringbean....
we picked him up at 8:00 am this morning...
he put his hook in the water...
boom he had a fish....
he caught atleast a dozen of them in 30 minutes...

Pawpaw was catching them too...
I was having a hard time getting photos...
I had to keep pulling fish off of hooks...
It has been a hard adjustment for me...
Stringbean is in kindergarten...
he's been in school for two weeks now...
8-3 except on Wednesday they get out at 2...
We now have milkshake Wednesday....
instead of milkshake Tuesday...
I'm happy I get to take him to school every morning...
so I get 45 minutes to 1 hour with him before school...
then I pick him up and have a few hours...
Wednesday is my favorite day now...
that extra hour is sure nice...
I know school is good for him...
but it sure is hard on me...
he's been with me since he was 8 weeks old...
the time has gone by too fast...
I've been very sentimental looking a photos...
we are getting a good routine going...
How many days till school is out for Summer????

It was a very HOT day ...
But it didn't stop us ...
We went to the horse track to see...
Pat Green....
We all went to school together...
The handsome fellow in yellow is the
Birthday boy....������75 years young...

Hubby had a blast too...
We had so much fun we didn't let the 
Hot temps or the 20,000 people ...
Bother us...

I'm so blessed to have all of them in my life
