Wonder Uncle is in the process of teaching all 5 bestcousinfriends to fish. Papa bought each granddaughter a fishing pole. Attatched to the fishing line is a little rubber fish - I guess to teach the art of casting? Well, that's what Wonder Uncle thougth to. He lined all 5 girls up on the edge of the lip of the garage and taught them how to cast.
Via is a natural - no doubt, she got the fishing gene from her mother who has fished competetively in Canada.
Noni - not so good, but she really loves flinging the rubber fish thing in the tree branches - "It's a flying fish. Do you want to see, Mom? Oh, darnit! It's stuck in the leaves and stick things again. Wonder Uncle!!!"
Yaya is a fishing genius. She sits patiently while everyone else does their thing, demonstrating the true skill of a seasoned fisher-person: the ability to sit idly for hours at a time while others fling their sticks around frantically. I couldn't be more proud.
The cousins? Eternally patient, zen-like giggling fisher-people. They mediate their way into the casting motion, stopping to do yoga poses between casts. Seriously. And they know the names for each pose. Did I mention they live in LA with their midwest transplant parents?
I am really not joking. Yoga poses.
