This past weekend the kids and I have been visiting my family in WI. This gave Matthew a few days to prepare for being out of the country for 10 days and us a great way to end the summer.
One of the trip highlights was taking Elias fishing at a small pond that my parents used to take my sister and me to as kids.
It’s not a well-known fishing hole, but with every cast, you catch a little fish.
It is perfect for kids.
I used to love going there.
And seeing Elias fishing from the same place I did 25 years ago, with my Dad gently showing him how to cast and reel in a fish was one of those circle of life, aha moments for me.
It’s incredible to see your kids make memories that are so similar to your own childhood memories, isn’t it? For me, it is an unexpected joy of parenting.
Have you had those moments in your parenting journey? What were they?
