A little weekend jont over to ye old fishin' hole. Jont is my grandmother's word for "little trip". She also always calls pants...."slacks". I encourage you all to use jont today in a sentence..it sounds a bit english. Jolly fun, I must say.
We have such fun with words around here. We have found that every family we know, has some words that we've never heard before....and, sometimes we adopt them and use them, too.
For instance...our best friends here have five kiddos, two being a set of boy twins, who are now 4 years old. There family has been over many, many times...and when they do, well....we just have a grand old time together.
Not stop talking. Lots of laughs. That kind of thing.
However, when it's suddenly quiet, and we are searching for her twins and Miss Lady K, we sometimes find them in kahootz together.
Kahootz--when small little children are planning trouble together, they are in kahootz with each other. It's fun to say, but not fun when your children are causing kahootzness to happen. Believe me, when 3 three year olds get their minds together, evil things happen.
Oh, and other good friends of ours with 7 kiddos, (5 ages 6 and under!), they call their tooshies duffers. You don't know what a tooshie is?
I'll give you a hint.
It's your gluteus maximus. Your cheeks. You know what cheeks I'm talkin' about.
My friend, well, she's got a lot of duffers to wash in the tuffers tubbers tub. Whew. That was hard to get out.
And now back to our regularly scheduled program....fishing with the family. Okay, I think this mama is seriously lacking some sleep. I'll get some just as soon as I'm done here.
I have to say, I love the outfit Cowboy W donned on this day. Wellies, plaid shorts from his Easter outfit, and a vintage basketball jersey from a team his grandpa coached in the seventies, I believe.
Unfortunately, we didn't catch a lot of fish.
However, Miss Lady K did catch a grass bass.
Some just relax and enjoy the scenery, while others are working hard at catching dinner grass bass.
I do love when we are all doing an activity together as a family. With my eldest who turned 15-and my youngest only 7 months, it can stretch a mama's mind to find activities everyone is content with.
It seems to me that if it involves water, it satisfies all. Going out on our boat, fishing, picnics at the beach, and swimming are some of the ways we are enjoying time as a family this summer. Oh, and don't forget the berry picking. Oh, yes.
And, I heard today blueberries are ready for picking.
I know what we'll be doing this week!
Have a wonderful Monday,
