Since this first trip, we have gone climbing many timesboth at the indoor gym near us and back outdoors at the Gunksand Mason has enthusiastically embraced his newfound identity as a climber. When were out at the park near our home, Mason brings his little rope and gear and strategically plots the route to the top of whatever \"mountain\" he is climbing, no matter how big or small. And although that first trip started as a way to introduce our son to a sport we love, weve since seen the other benefits climbing has brought to him. Climbing has given Mason a newfound sense of confidencethe confidence that comes from overcoming your fearof the unknown, of failure, of taking risksand pushing yourself to try something new and then achieve. Its also given him a greater well of resilience that has spilled over into other areas of his lifeto work at things that are hard, to overcome small failures, and to relish in the challenge. For a shy little boy like Mason, these benefits have been unexpectedly meaningful and rewarding. At school, his teachers have seen him come out of his shell and become a more social and vocal member of his class. Although this is due to more than just climbing, I cant help but believe that the confidence hes gained through climbing has played a big part. As I think about our next outdoor adventurethis time traveling to Colorado, one of our favorite places in the worldI think about the proud smile of my son, standing next to my husband, on the top of the highest mountain in the world that day.
The Best Deals Will Come From the Most Unusual Places, When my girls one day came running through the main gate, they were carrying a miniature garden chair with them. This was a splendidly designed camping chair. On finding out from where they got it, I went to check the area out personally. There was a bedroom-sized garage full of clothes and sweaters and camping chairs. I was stunned at their exquisite beauty, and the throw-away price at which they were being sold. I bought them all for the sheer joy of having them.
