Go Climb A Wall
Last Saturday when our family was in Estes, most of the group went to the Sportsman store for indoor rock climbing. This is one of the traditions that the kiddos have latched onto, since we've been going up there. Just look at the expressions of all our grands and you'll know how much they love rock climbing. Also, it is humorous- but the ones who don't like being roped on, will willingly and enthusiastically do "boulder hopping" which is simply climbing without a rope on lower sections of a wall. Go figure!
Our two oldest granddaughters ended up tackling a very difficult climbing area; of course their dads and Papa were telling them they could reach the handholds, just to stretch a little further.
Papa having fun with his grands!
Old oldest grandson climbs like a spider, so fast and easily; he probably inherited that from me. Seriously, I was called a mountain goat and a spider because I could climb up a rock face in record time.
Normally I would go to cheer everyone on and supervise, but I stayed at the condo to rest so our Kim took over my duties.
I hope all the kiddos continue to climb and enjoy it. You don't see kids climbing trees or fences these days or walking 6' fences anymore(like I did), so I'm thankful this is available to them.
Another granddaughter who doesn't like to climb, took over taking photos-love this pic.
I've already gone for a walk, increased it by about 1/4 mile; got to say it feels so good to get out and walk each day. My bike is sitting in the garage waiting for met to climb on, however I think it will be another month at least before I feel comfortable doing that. Yesterday I drove to the grocery store; my doctor had cleared me to drive as soon as I was off of pain meds. I will say I was really tired by last evening.
I hope you have a fantastic Thursday and find reasons to be thankful.
Joy to you! Noreen
