I took the Connor-man fishing today. I had him using bread for bait, and he caught 3 catfish and 3 sunfish. We both had a great time, but one moment stands out more than any other.

A woman in her late 40s came by while he was fishing. She had a bag of bread and asked if we minded if she fed the geese a short ways away. We said no.

Connor observed the feeding of the geese for a moment or two, noting that there was a swarm of sunfish on the outside of the feeding geese. Without any prompting from me, he then walked over to the lady. "You keep them distracted," he said, pointing at the fish. "I'll drop my line in and they'll never even suspect there is a hook in it." He did, and caught a fish almost the moment his line hit the water.

She looked at him, then at me. "How old is he?" she asked.

"Just five," I replied, grinning ear to ear.

He's smart. He might be smarter than I am. That's a good thing, I think.
