Friday Field Trip

Last week I was able to go help with a field trip that Ethan went on. We went to the local gymnastics center and they were able to rock climb on the climb wall. It was a lot of fun for Ethan. He said, "Mom, if I like it, maybe it can be my new hobby." He loved it, so maybe it will be his new hobby.

This is the line they were able to walk on to practice balance.

These were fun to balance on too. Ethan was really good at this even when I tried to push him off :)

Good 'ol tug of war.

Ethan's first climb. He got to the point where the wall slanted out and he decided he wanted to come down.

Ethan's second climb.

He got to this box and turned and stared at us. He started chewing the collar of his shirt, so I knew he was nervous. He told us he was done and wanted to come down. That's what happens when you look down.

Ethan's third climb.

Wow, that's high.

Ethan made it all the way to the top and he rang the bell. Woohoo, way to go Ethan!

He had so much fun on this field trip and I was glad that I was able to go. Who knows maybe he'll get to take classes here.
