Learning to filet a fish

My husband brought the kids fishing last week and Saturday morning.

And he also thought my son how to filet a fish on Saturday.

So Alexandre received his first homeschool lesson of the 2011-2012 year.  Well, make that his 2nd lesson as he did a babysitting course last week…  *grin*

Poor fishy…   This will make small filets.    Apparently the fish was dead after being hooked so they couldn’t throw it back in the lake.
