Go Climb A Rock

Happy Wednesday to you. I am out and about today, looking for majestic colors of fall. I wanted to share some fun pictures with you. Almost all of our grands, except the very youngest ones, have taken indoor rock climbing classes. This last Monday was the final night of our two granddaughters' class, so of course hubby and I had to go. You all may remember that in college I was a rock climber; I absolutely loved it, but it was one hobby that went by the way. You can imagine how it thrills my heart to watch our grands climb. Here is Miss F, almost 9; she is a natural climber and really enjoys it.
This is Miss O, she will be 7 in a few months. 
This next move is called a Dead Hang, because as you can see, you are simply hanging by your hands. Miss F is amazing; she was able to hang, just like she is in the pic, for 2 min. 28 seconds.  People, do you know how long that is?! For those of us moms, we remember how long one minute was when we were in labor.  She last more than twice as long as the other students. 
A bit harder for little sister, but I imagine she'll be catching up to her big sister soon.
I am so proud of all of our grands for taking these classes, at different times; I'm especially proud of those who don't enjoy climbing and conquered their fear.
I hope you have a wonderful day!

  5. it looks like fun,,, but for some reason,, I don't think this puggy could do that!

  6. Those are such good skills for kids to learn. They even have a small one at our girl's school. Great pictures of the kids! xo Diana

  7. I'm sure I couldn't 'hang' like that for even 3 seconds! It's nice that the kiddos have physical activities to do to help them stay healthy and away from the TV/computer screens! Blessings, Cindy

  8. I hope all is well with you Noreen..haven't seen you around. But, I know you are busy with your many grandchildren. That rock climbing looks hard! That is a really LONG time to hang!! Hugs, Jeanne, Chloe and LadyBug

  9. That is so cool and how great that you went to watch them. I did not know that you were a rock climber!!!
