Rock Climbing

We’ve The kids have been doing quite a bit of rock climbing recently.  At first it was just Anders who seemed keen on it.

Maybe it took a while for the other kids to check it out mentally, to overcome their apprehension.  To challenge their fear of heights.

But now they are all doing it.  Pushing themselves to get up above that orange line that says “success” to them.

Laars squeaks passed the orange line.  Success!  He's sooo proud.

    • Thanks for the link. Good on you for rock climbing. I noticed you also got a new slack line. We’ve brought one on our travels and the kids thoroughly enjoy it when we find a place to set it up. Great for core strength.
