Looking At Things From A Different Perspective

Hey Guys,

Not much has happened this week, although we caught many types of sunfish like a Bluegill and Pumpkin-seed at Community Boating, which was so much fun. Sadly, I didn't have good luck and didn't catch any while the kids were catching 4 or 5. Maybe next time I'll have luck, but regardless this week has been good.

I wanted to talk about a group of kids who came to the Children's Museum last Wednesday who made me feel grateful and opened my eyes. There was a group of deaf kids who came up to see the Green crabs, and at first I didn't know how to show them how to hold the crab a certain way so it wouldn't pinch them. Multiple times I had to mime things out, like, "Touch softly on shell" or "Hold the sides while I hold the Pinchers." I thought these kids were so brave because as I mimed it out they’d have the adults tell me how they were feeling towards the crabs. While others went fishing it was nice to see the smiles on their faces. It made me feel good knowing that I made them happy and that they enjoyed holding crabs for the first time.

The next day I was also at Children’s Museum, and it was just a relaxing day. A family came up to us and the mother wanted to hold a Green Crab and she did. In the corner of my eye I saw Jahari pulling up on his fishing rod what seemed to be a Striped-Bass. We struggled at first to take the hook out of the Bass’s, mouth. Then, one of the sons that was with that same family helped us because this is what he does for his job in Georgia. It was so much fun because it was the first time I’d ever seen a Striped-Bass. If it wasn’t for Chanse, the son, we might have struggled for hours trying to take the hook out.
