Little Climbers

Our friends the Buddies invite us to do all kinds of really fun things.  They took us climbing at a climbing gym and the girls are never going to stop asking to go back. Because I am actually posting this a month late I can tell you that they have been literally trying to climb the walls lately and they ask constantly to go rock climbing. They have driven me a little crazy with their sudden need to climb everything in sight.

It has been years since I have been climbing and it was fun to go back to a gym.  It was also disturbing because climbing used to be so much easier.  It seems that I have aged. The kids took right to climbing.  Red Fish would only go about 3/4 of the way up the big climbing wall but she did it about 20 times. New Fish preferred the bouldering wall and went across it for a couple of hours. It was fun to see their excitement and determination. I would love to find a way to include more climbing in our life.

 While we were at the climbing gym, New Fish befriended a little girl about twice her age.  This seems to happen almost everyplace we go recently. If there is anyone within five years of New Fish's age she immediately introduces herself and strikes up a conversation. Red Fish usually joins in the fun but New Fish is unafraid of approaching new children. She always introduces me to her "new best friends."
