This week has been better than expected. We didn’t know what to expect because we had never gone through what we did, a year before. We wanted to go into this week, open to however we were going to feel and however we felt led with our emotions. We had our moments of emotion, but honestly, they were few.
One of the things that Dan was looking so forward to, was taking our kids fishing. He talked of that often. When we went on our getaway last October, one of the things we made sure to do, was take the picture of our two Hooties with us in the boat, so that we could say we took them fishing. Dan suggested we make that a yearly tradition.
Tonight we continued that tradition. I know it may sound cheesy, but it is one way that we are remembering the past, yet moving forward. It sparked amazing conversations, yet realizations that God is doing something in us. God is changing us. He is working in us. And we are blessed to be where we are at in our life.
The day brought storms, but they gave way to a beautiful evening of fishing! We were the only boat out on Lake George for quite some time. As you can see in the pictures, it was picturesque!
We both caught a few fish, but in terms of what we’ve caught in the past, the fishing was a little slower. We still had such a great time together and a great time fishing with our kids.

Of course Dan has to out do me with his pike!
