A change of plans

Last night, Dave's game was canceled because the other team didn't have enough players. He will play Sunday night instead. Sunday will be a busy day.

Since Dave's game was canceled and the kids and I were ready to go somewhere, we went catfishing. Now, in my opinion, of all the things to fish for, catfish are ranking pretty low on the excitement scale. The Niobrara was still fairly high due to all of the rain we have received this spring and the water was rushing at a good rate. I wasn't sure if the fish would bite. Gracie caught the first catfish of the night. They were able to see it as she was reeling it in, but, unfortunately, the fish got away. This would be the theme of the night. It actually was rather humorous to watch them grab a rod that was bending in two, try and set the hook, and watch everything go slack. Matt caught the next fish, Aaron caught the biggest, and Daddy caught the smallest. I did a lot of oohing and awing.

When it started getting too cold Gracie and Aaron and I went to sit in the car and we entertained each other with stories. My kids have some great imaginations. There were stories of wolves and birds, a family of tree frogs who lived in a water tree, and more frogs.

It was a great evening and beautiful. For once the wind is laying low so we can enjoy the outdoors.

Well, this weekend is shaping up to be a busy one. Tonight we have a picnic and pool party for Common Ground. Tomorrow is church and then another picnic at the Long Pine State Park, maybe some tubing, and then Dave's game tomorrow night.

This next week we have Tshirts, VBS (Messy Olympics), and I leave for Olathe to spend some time with my sisters and mom and celebrate Jana's 30th.

I hope you all have a good week and a Happy Father's Day and always please leave us a note, we would love to hear from you.
