Family Day

We have started a family day twice a month on the Fridays that Jay is home. I am so grateful for homeschooling and the flexibility that it allows.  Jay travels usually 2 weeks out of the month.  When he is home he still needs to work and cook dinners.  Saturday is a great work day for him.  It is much easier for him to take a Friday off.  So on those two Fridays a month we are exchanging our Fridays and Saturdays.  Fridays will be our day off and then we will do school on Saturdays while Jay is working.

For our first family day we went to Canyon Lake to go fishing, swimming and just to hang out.  

We paid the extra money to go down to the camp ground area.  It was grassy and shaded.  It was a beautiful day!  Hardly anyone was there and we left just as campers were coming in for the weekend.
We brought camp chairs, fishing poles and lunch and snacks.

I don't fish.  I was able to relax and play with the kids and just enjoy the day.  It is nicer that the kids are all getting older and Jay was even able to do some fishing instead of just baiting hooks the whole time.  The large fished teased us all day swimming just out of reach and jumping out of the water to let us know they were there!  Ha!

Savannah was the only one with any luck this time. She actually caught 3 fish with her little barbie fishing pole.  No one else caught anything!!

We decided to keep the fish and freeze them to eat later when we have some more. : )
Great day!  Looking forward to our next one in a couple of weeks!
