leap of faith




i just had to share these images e's teacher took of her at camp. i am so crazy proud of her.

i have tried very hard with both girls to lead by example and brave some of my own fears. (i am not comfortable swimming in the ocean - but i want them to be - so in i go.)

heights are one thing they know i fear. my girl conquered this challenge in herself. she can do anything she sets her mind to. she inspires me.

this is so cool! i have always been curious about the ropes course, but have never had the opportunity to try it out. how great is it that they get to do it as a class?! what a wonderful bonding experience. i hope calder and lake have the same chance at some point in their lives. and i've gotta say, rather hip to have a teacher who would email these photos back to mom+dad! :)

I know :) Me too! Yes - and I must say all around, we have had amazing teachers through our public school experience. (And we have a stellar principal now too!)

we had a ropes course when i was a kid at camp yallani, being a preteen when they built it i had the chance to help and test it out. the scariest and most thrilling experience i still remember today! when i went back last year for the first time in more than 20 years, the high ropes course was still up in the trees, abandoned now.
