Sophia’s new-found friend…
It was nice to see the kids working together to build a sand castle kingdom.
In the evening, we watched the full moon come up over the lake and enjoyed the campfire.
A little late night fishing for Mike and Sophia brought in a catfish. It was quickly removed from the hook and released back into the lake.
The next morning Sophia hooked a huge sunfish.
After Sophia’s big catch, Mike caught two bass. Tom and Sophia volunteered to scale, clean and filet them. I was quite impressed that Sophia took part in this. She is a city girl and becomes sad when a spider is killed instead of being released outside.
After the fish were cleaned, the kids continued work on their sand castle kingdom.
They finished the weekend with one last cannon ball into the lake.
It was a great way to end summer. Bring on fall!
