Conquering your fears

I am so very proud of my sons and Kyla.

Yesterday we took them to climb a wall at Chameleons Rock

I think Jason might have some Spiderman blood running through his veins.  Climbing up there was effortless.  His first time ever and it looked as though he has been climbing all his life.

After he finished his second climb the owner asked him if he would like to participate in a competition for school kids. He was very impressed with Jason.  How awesome that there is something he stands out in.  Not living in the shadow of someone else.  So happy for him.

Quintus was petrified! I didn’t know that he had a fear of heights!  He wasn’t even half-way when he got scared.  Really scared.  I could see the fear in his eyes.  He wanted to go down.  We spoke to him though and I told him what a great feeling it is when you overcome your fears.  When you beat your own self. 

It took him a moment to compose himself and make that decision.  To decide that he will continue even though ever fibre of his being is telling him not to.

VERY unsure.  Fear running through every part of his body.

Deciding that he WILL do this

Zander was a tad too small to climb the wall.  They DO have a little kiddies wall though.  Unfortunately they have nothing soft for the kids to fall on should they fall.  He was very scared of falling and getting hurt.  Yet, he did try.  He would get scared, get down but get right up and try again.

Then it was Kyla’s turn.  She broke down.  As in get up and cry just a short way up.  Unfortunately she HAD to go up a little higher before they could let her come down again.  It’s the only way with the safety gear they use.  She pushed through and went as high as she needed too.  Proud once again!

  5. That looks like fun…from down here! I could never do that as I am really afraid of heights, but I think my girls would like that. I will have to find a climbing wall here in Kansas and have them try it. Thanks for the great idea!

  6. Such brave kids you have to conquer this wall climbing – something I tried once but due to my fear of heights, it did not go well
