Fishin’ and whittlin’

This is my 10 year old only son. He caught this fish for our dinner when we were on vacation in October.

He took the second photo of a whistle he whittled. He made one for each of his sisters for Christmas. It was a fun project for him. He worked very hard drilling the holes, whittling the notches, and sanding them. You can see how to make one here .

    Now that’s a man’s man! Way to go!

    Great lookin’ fish & whistle.

    I think he needs his own blog, though. Something about fish guts and foo-foo clothes just don’t go together.

    Tell him to feel free to visit The Bicycle Rack when he needs his fix of on-line testosterone!

    I love that man that has the Bicycle blog. He is sooooo handsome, but don’t you think it’s a little strange that he’s checking your blog? ;-)

    That son of your’n is a REAL man. Does this mean he’s catch’n our supper on Monday? I sure do hope so! What a huge fish. Yummy!

    So, you are a stay home mom to 6 and you said this handsome young man is your only son. I just “have” to ask . . .what are the ages of your other children (if you don’t mind me asking)? I am also stay home (and homeschooling) mom to 6–1 boy and 5 girls! LOL My oldest is my son at 8 yrs. old, all the way down to 7 month old twin girls. I found you through Barbara’s apron contest–love the aprons you are making–great job! Wish I had the money for one right now! :-) Rebecca

    Hi Rebecca,

    I’m glad you stopped by. My children are 11, 10, 6, 5, 2, and 11 mo. 3 of them are having birthdays soon, so they are really more evenly spaced than it apppears.
