Well Grandpa is going to be getting an award for patience! He and I brought Ben, Sam, Maisie, and Jackson to a kid's fishing Derby at the Forest Preserve over the weekend. We actually fished for about an hour and a half (in Zkid time this is very long!). We had one catch but it wasn't the Derby's biggest. Maisie pulled in a 3 and a half inch sunfish. In the fisherwoman's words "it was as big as my chin". Unfortunately he was measured and tanked before we could get a picture of the proud little girl with her fish (typical fishing yarn I know).
The kids are enjoying lots of time with their cousin Jackson who is now big brother to Fiona (1) and Delaney and McKenna (two week old twins). As much as he loves his twins, I think Jackson is enjoying time with his big cousins.
For those of you who haven't heard, we aren't going to be here in Illinois much longer. John has taken a job in Vermont. He left last week and we'll soon follow, as soon as someone buys the house.
If you know anyone looking for a house be sure to tell them about a beautiful house that is for sale in Winfield.... It has great neighbors, an excellent library close by, and the best friends that anyone could ask for a stone's throw away.
