Our friends from Illinois came for a visit and it rained almost every day. So, we ended up at a rock wall one afternoon. The good thing...we are home-schoolers and had the whole place to ourselves. Nice. I wasn't sure if Joy would be able to do much climbing with her little hand...but as usual, she proved herself with an inverted wall.
The place was pretty large, and I think the kids had a good time even though their arms and legs were noodles by the time we left. Eva had a hard time, initially. She just could not bring herself to let go and repel down the wall. Instead, she wanted to climb down. After 30 minutes and a lot of tears, she made it. After a bit, I took her around the corner and practiced short repels with her. Eventually, she made it to the top. She wasn't going to let that wall get the best of her!
I loved this sign at the rock wall.
Onto soccer. Jack has his last game tomorrow. Ivy and Eva finished last week. As much as I love watching my kids play soccer, I am looking forward to the break. Between, piano, violin, 2 soccer leagues, co-op, schooling, and a traveling husband, I was running out of steam.
Speaking of soccer...my handsome husband was traveling to New York last month. Upon entering his hotel lobby, he spotted the US Women's soccer team. He didn't hesitate to have his picture snapped with best and prettiest player, Alex Morgan.
He and his co-worker ended up going to the stadium to watch them play that night...while I was home in Virginia taking my kids to soccer, cooking dinner, washing dishes, washing clothes, cleaning house..............
He met Kirk Cameron on a flight once, but didn't get his picture taken with him. Just an observation. I probably would have.
