Until now, I never...
Climbed to the Top of the UW Climbing Wall

UW Climbing Wall

After a very full all-day class I thought I’d just be riding my bike home and chilling out, but oh no, Todd and the kids had ridden their bikes to the UW climbing wall and wanted me to join them.  So at 5:30 p.m. I rode in the opposite direction of home, on this gorgeous fall evening.  When I got there, the kids were running as fast as they could towards the climbing wall, then quickly scurrying up, grabbing just a few hand-holds here and there until they reached the top.  And of course they started shouting, “You try it mom!”  Which I did.  And it was hard.  My converse sneakers had no grip whatsoever, and the first hand-hold was up pretty high.  But after many tries, I finally did it.  Hooray!  Then Nadine scurried up and joined me and we sat for a photo shoot.  Now we just had to figure out how to get down, which I have to say is a lot easier when you’re as tall as me.  But we did it.
