The Learning Curve

 This is Logan.  He is our oldest grandchild and we see him for a few months each year.  It is always amazing to note how he has grown, what he has learned and what he is able to do.  We are often heard saying, "WOW, you could not do that last year!" 

So much of growing up is doing things for the first time!  These two pictures are Logan doing stuff he could not do last year.  Neighborhood Park has this twirly ladder that just was a little too hard to do, but this last summer - conquered.  Big Kid Park has a rope climb that was just a bit too high last summer although it was attempted many times.  This year - easy peasy!

Logan has enjoyed a nice elevator ride or better yet, an escalator.  We visited the Mall of America this summer for the sole purpose of riding ALL of the escalators. Yes, we did. :)

Sadly I do not have pictures, but he has successfully passed his escalator joy along to his cousin, Kai who joyfully raced to go again. 

Kai learned how to drink from a water fountain (bubbler) while we were visiting, it was wet and fun! Kai is curious and likes to try everything!

Scarlett, enjoyed her first camping trip this year. She is a natural!
She did not like riding the escalator or elevator at all.  On a family trip to a waterpark/hotel we took the stairs up and down all four flights many times rather than take the elevator. I am guessing next year she will be ready, but now she is ready to chill, nailed it. 

How many new things have you tried? I have not tried enough. I pray that I will be ready when the opportunity strikes.
