#THISGIRLCAN enjoy climbing in Eidfjord
“Life’s a challenge… you face it front on and accept the bumps/bruises or you just let it wash over you and watch from the sidelines” …… Great advice from one of the girl’s godparents and a sentiment we try to adopt each and every day… accepting every possible challenge as long as we feel it will benefit us (as a family) or help challenge the girls.
Our girls have tried indoor climbing and even motorised climbing walls… plus a fair few ‘outdoor adventure climbing walls’… but today was a real challenge with no brightly coloured hand/feet holds… just solid unrelenting stone to find some purchase!!!
Safety was of key importance today and from the first minute, we felt reassured that both Jane & Joseph were in total control with both girls fully harnessed and a two rope system firmly in place…
We listened to a great podcast last week with the girls which said ‘kindness is the one central ingredient to a happy life’… we reckon that’s so true… but would also add that ‘perseverance’ is a great quality to have too…
Was it easy? No not at all, they struggled at times but kept going… and will have a learnt a new skill
Did they enjoy it? I guess their smiles tell that story without me adding to it! They loved every minute!
Will we build on this experience and do it again? Absolutely… my feet were itching to join them!!
