Rock Climbing
Our home school group went to an indoor rock climbing facility this week.

The kids had fun and got quite a workout. Here is Garrett trying to make it to the top.

He did make it, and was very proud of himself.


They climbed pretty high.


Here is Samantha hanging from the top.

She wasn't to sure about this in the beginning. It didn't really seem like a "girlie" thing to do.

I think the pink ropes helped to change her mind.


She actually did great! I think the fact that she has long legs really helped her. She did some of the more difficult climbs at harder inclines and really enjoyed it.

Yes! I did it! A happy girl talking with her friends about her awesome climb.

Nothing new on the adoption front. I can't believe four months has already gone by. I think the fact that I am so busy with the other children helps not to obsess about the long wait.
It has been a quiet week for referrals. I am praying we end the day with a bang and have a flood of referrals this afternoon. They seem to come in waves.
Here's hoping for a tsunami!!!!

My husband and I used to go to a rock gym a long time ago. It is fun and it is not a non-girl thing at all. In some ways, girls can have an advantage.

What a great outing for your kids!

I want to hurl, just looking at those ropes and the height. Ugh. I'm completely impressed that your kids did that and freaked out by it at the same time. :) ;)
