The Happiness Project :: Week 12

We celebrated Memorial Day
with an awesome day of fishing on the pond.

We ate the best kind of picnic.
The nothing fancy,
toss food on a table
and eat it up picnic.

We even had yummy cupcakes
baked by our Aunt Kroger.

Koen hopped in the boat with my parents
and caught 3 fishies.

He was so proud.

I even caught a fish!

The words for the day were
patience, perseverance, determination, and confidence.

Griffin had to say them over and over
because the fish weren't biting for him.

In the end, after reciting these words
and over
and over,
he caught 4 fish!

It was one of those great
life lesson opportunities.
