As I mentioned, Tabby started her first rock climbing course last night. She has been looking forward to this for a while, ever since she saw some of the little kids climbing over a year ago. The class starts at age 5 and so we signed her up for the first one available. I unfortunately missed her first class since I had to work late, but I understand she was one fearless little Gecko, climbing swiftly up the wall. The class is an hour and 15 minutes long, which is by far the longest class/sport she’s taken. Even soccer was only an hour. But she really seemed to take to it.
She described the process of getting down for me when we met up for dinner. “You just have to let go, but then the wall kind of holds you, so you have to kick away and let yourself fall. But it’s OK because it’s just a little bit and the rope holds you.” I can’t wait to check it out in person.
