We don't have a fishing license, but that hasn't stopped us from a good time. Thankfully the kids don't really care that we're "fishing" using a circle of pony beads instead of hooks.
It's sort of a bummer too-when Nye cast the pony beads into a hole, something jumped on top of it twice. We definitely would have caught a fish that day!
Still, there's something almost relaxing about just smacking the water with your pole and whining about your line "yarning up." Maybe one day it will actually be relaxing to take them to the creek. Baby steps, lots and lots of baby steps.
