1-2-3-4-5, Once I caught a fish alive!

Elise sings this song all the time:

1-2-3-4-5, Once I caught a fish alive,
6-7-8-9-10, Then I let him go again.
Why did you let him go?
Because he bit my finger so.
Which finger did he bite?
This little pinky on the right!

This past Saturday, she finally got to catch her first real fish! She's been looking forward to this. My dad has been promising to take her fishing for a few weeks now. I can remember the first time he took me fishing and how exciting it was to share his favorite hobby. It was neat to go along and see Elise have this experience too. :) Of course, she was afraid of the fish, but I expected that! In addition to catching a few fish, we also fed the turtles and ducks. It was a great activity for the first weekend of spring.
