Papa's Fisherman

Aiden (7) and I have two weeks together, with just the two of us. This will be our longest time together since his mother died a year ago on July 5. We had a week and a half shortly afterwards, but it was a most difficult time for us both. He and his little brother, Nolan, live with his grandmother, who has guardianship of both. Some healing has taken place and he could not get to the Gile Flowage fast enough after dinner (good bargaining chip for a clean plate). My heart skipped a few beats when he looked up from his pole and exclaimed,  "Your awesome Papa." I needed that...Off to a stellar start.
