Cookies & Fish

Ok so today's lesson....

what do cookies and fish have to do with each other.

Any Guesses?

Ok I won't keep you wondering!

Last night we had our Sunday School Picnic at the lake. It is such a great time! This time we had more in attendance than we did last year. Which is a nice blessing! Anyway, my kids being the bug and frog catching kiddos they are brought their jars in case they caught something. Jaron the smart kid he is, decided to put a ice cookie in the bottom of the jar and laid it in on the lake floor. Well low and behold the boy caught a fish! Yes a fish! A blue gill to be exact.

Not wanting to break his heart we allowed him to bring it home and place it in our fish tank. I figured we would wake to a dead fish floating.

NOPE! We have a 2 1/2 inch blue gill swimming along with the gold fish, 2 tetras, and 3 little sharks. I am completely amazed the thing lived. It was moved from one jar to a Juicey Juice container to a small gold fish bowl to our tank. So if you are ever stranded and all you have are cookies, a jar and a lake near's a new way of catching fish!

Jaron knows what he's doing! He'll be the next big pro fisher.
