Reaching new heights.

This was really fun. At REI members get a free trip up the climbing wall and so I took the kids over and up they went! Art climbed with a lot of thought and excitement.   He looked like a pro!  He went up about 20 feet before getting sort of stuck and feeling too scared to go higher.  But I have a feeling he'll shoot up to the top in just a few more tries.

Every person has to practice a short descent involving walking down the wall with "pizza slice" legs before climbing up. This took Lewis several tries to master and he was extremely serious. None of the smiles and obvious joy Art was showing. Finally Lewis clumsily groped his way up a good 10 feet before saying somewhat quietly, "I'm done," and expertly coming down. He later said it was SUPER fun. I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover!
