While Lea is away on the Wheat State Whirlwind, Erik and Carter have been busy with several activities in Lawrence and Kansas City. Carter's favorite thus far has been fishing with Grandpa at Mary's Lake in Lawrence. Their hard work provided the protein for lunch on Thursday. Above you can see Carter using Grandpa's ice fishing rod (a good size for him). After some tutoring, Carter caught a bluegill all by himself. He is inspecting the catch below.
[UPDATE - Due to popular demand (an email from Lea), a photo of the fish Carter caught is below. His odd facial expression is due to the bright sun and his failure to remember his sunglasses.]
Hard work paid off with a delicious lunch!
