Climbing Day

9 01 2007

Yesterday, Isaac, Graham and I took a hike in the Kabiye mountains. They boys had been excited about going since we had decided make the outing a few days ago. We didn’t hike to far, nor climb too high, but we did have a lot of fun together. Here are a few pictures…

This is the rock formation we climbed on and around. Isaac kept wanting to go higher and higher, but a wiser head prevaiedl and he had to settle for middle ground. Graham is peeking out from the opening just below Isaac.

At first, Graham wasn’t too sure about how the day was going go. He had all kinds of concerns. But, to his credit, he soldiered on and it wasn’t too long before he found his courage and climbing legs. I am very proud of him!

I had forgotten how fearless of a climber Isaac can be (a trait I’d like to encourage, and curb all at the same time). He was eager to explore and found many new paths, nooks and crannies. He found this opening in the rock and climbed right in. What cool kid!

Sounds like you had a great day with the boys. Of course, you know who Isaac takes after in the climbing, don’t you? I know what you mean about wanting to encourage and discourage at the same time. It is wonderful when the kids get to an age where you can start venturing out and trying new things with them. Just wait until Owen is old enough as well…you may have a hard time keeping up.
Love, Mom

He doesn’t get it from me! I always though how cool it was that Andy could climb that tall tree in front of the old house. Now that I realize he was Isaac’s age when he did that, it think it was pretty cool that you actually let him do it!
