Breaking in the ice shack-2011!

DH took the boys out two days in a row ice fishing. Here they are all crammed into the ice house with our friends the Greens! They went out yesterday in a blinding blizzard of a snowstorm-our biggest storm so far this season. Today they went out again and caught quite a few fish, brought home six massive bass!

                Here are the fish!

                        "Super C"-And one proud fisherman!

Here is my oldest son, filleting the fish so I could make a fish chowder. It turned out sooo good!
I'm pretty sure the kids won't be too happy to get back to their regular routine of school work tomorrow! We are so greatful to have this extra time with their Dad on his days off. Homeschooling really brings us all closer together. The kids will be grown and gone before long and it's so nice to capture these moments of "life learning" thanks to homeschooling. Our oldest can now fillet the fish-PTL! As well as DH said that our 8 year-old can set his own traps now and has even been able to catch his own fish! Way to go "Number One" and "Super C"!


  1. Ice fishing is one of those things my boys would love to do!

  2. Thanks, Susan! It's such a wonderful thing that my husband wants to take the time to teach our three boys to ice fish. Hopefully our daughters will be out learning soon too!
    BTW I LOVE your blog. You really inspire me to be so much more, "come up higher", and really ENJOY what I am already doing with my kids!
