50 Feet in 45 Seconds!

My middle grandson (12 years old) loves to ride his bike in races in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, bowl, play in chess tournaments, learn more in his jiu-jitsu, and he LOVES to climb. Two years ago when he was only 10, he climbed this 50 foot tower at Boy Scout camp in 45 seconds - yes, 45 seconds! I don't know how it is even possible to move this fast in a climb, but he did - he is the little figure in the photo at the top of the tower.

All his life he has loved to climb - and would often climb high things and ask for his picture to be taken to "freak grandma out"! And the photos often did do exactly this!

I love watching as all my grandsons grow up and develop interests and skills - I love them all and am so proud of them . . . and yes, I still get "freaked out" at times, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
