August 24, 2018: Well, all that buttering up paid off. I caught a fish today! I convinced mommy to take me fishing off the dock. Then I told her what lure to use. Then I told her where to cast it. Then I took my pole back and started reeling it in. It only took a couple of tries and then I caught the big one! Daddy says this is officially my first fish since I was able to get it all the way out of the water. The other fish in the lake musta really appreciated my stories and songs yesterday cause then daddy and mommy took me out on the boat later and we caught eight more fish! Either grandma is a great teacher or I’m a great student….or maybe we’re both just really great and I’m an amazing fisherwoman just like her….yup. Last year what should have been my first fish jumped off my lure. I feel vindicated.
