National holiday!

Hi Everyone!

I nearly forgot to mention that yesterday, July 14th, was a very special day!

Do you know what day it was?

In France, where I am from, July 14th is Bastille Day, our National Holiday. But amongst my pals and my mom and dad we call it Fete National or Quatorze Juillet, which just means 14th July!

Bastille Day is just like the American Independence day - we have great firework shows and parades and tons of yummy food! I was so busy celebrating that I didn't get a chance to let all of you know about it. So mark your calendars so that we can all celebrate together next year!

Happy belated quatorze juillet everyone!

Gone Fishing!

That’s right, I’ve gone fishing. Or I will go fishing just as soon as my Dad gets all of his gear ready. I love fishing. The first time I went fishing was at summer camp when our camp leader took us to the pier. It was great! He got live worms and everything! Some of us got them on the hooks right away, but Paul couldn’t because he was too scared and George and Conrad were too busy having a worm race on the dock!

But sooner or later we all got our lines in the water. Do you remember who caught the first fish?

We had really hoped to get more fish that day on the pier, but in the end we only turned over two fish to our cook but said they were great! Best of all, he gave us cookies as a reward!

Well, Dad’s all set with our fishing rods so we’re going to go down to the lake and have a go. Have you ever been fishing before? Why don’t you tell me your story too!

And for more about my fishing adventure with my camp gang check out Fish Soup in the red colored book, Nicholas on Vacation!

Happy fishing!
