    I took my kids to my family's farm yesterday. We walked the creek all the way down to where it feeds into the river. The water was really low but there was a few places to fish down by the river. We caught 9 drum 1-12#, a few pumpkinseeds, two gar, and a quillback. We also went swimming and built little boats out of sticks and leaves and raced them down the creek. I love taking my kids down to the creek. Its where I spent most of my childhood, its where my dad and grandma also spent a lot of their time as children. And now my children can spend their days just like their great grandma, grampa, and mom did when we were their age.

    Tricia thanks for sharing your day with the children. When they are older and look back they will cherrish those trips. Glad you had a great time and caught some fish.

    Sounds like a good time... it is those experiences that build character in children. They won't forget it either. Keep it up!
