Let them stay up, Without the clocks staring at you from every wall its easy to just unwind and let nature take its course on your kids. Encourage them to play games, tell stories by the campfire, roast marshmallows and just stay up as late as they want. Stargazing is a great activity and a great way to introduce them to the to the stars and all that is above them. I guarantee they will sleep like logs with the fresh night air. This is a great way to teach them to just let go and unwind. We all need that in our lives.
Boy, did he look cute heading down the trail with his little backpack! We had a couple of routes on our list to check out but it became clear fairly quickly that our first choice wouldnt work. A climb called Three Pines was as gentle as we remembered, but the start had a sequence of reaches that were just too big for a little boy barely over three feet tall. We decided to head down the cliff, and soon we were dropping our packs at the base of a rarely climbed corner. The route was steep but full of holdsperfect.
Pulling into New Paltz was exciting. A quick stop at the climbing shop was like visiting an old friend. When we arrived at the trailhead, it was early afternoona far cry from the alpine starts we aimed for in the past, though seldom achieved. My husband and I, back again at our favorite cliff, now with our son, were ready to embark on our adventure. Wed given a lot of thought to how to give Mason a sense of ownership and accomplishment in our day and the first thing we did was have him pack his own pack. We let him choose a few things he wanted to carry and included a piece of group gear so that he could contribute.
