Just Climb!

This summer The Boy has been giving the climbing wall a run at the local gym.  Every time he tries it, despite his obvious anxiousness, he climbs just a little bit higher.  I'm so proud of him!

So, as he enters first grade today, I want to remind him to remember his climbing experiences whenever he's learning something new or in an unfamiliar situation. 

Some days may seem like just one big rock after another.  JUST CLIMB!

Don't you just love that embossed arrows paper I used?  It was on clearance!! 

Come play along with us over on Sketchy Thursdays.

This week's sponsor is Sweet Peach Crop Shop and they're offering up an amazing kit!!!

Cross your fingers The Boy has a good "befriending" day at school.  He only has one other kid from his Kindergarten class in his new first grade class.  He can be so shy and has a hard time going up to people and making friends.  He usually waits for them to come to him.  His experience today is going to color how he approaches the rest of the year.  I hope it's a good one.
