Birthday party at the local climbing facility today. That's fun for all ages—for the kids, who are climbing with all the energy of childhood and none of the fears of adulthood, and for the adults, who are watching from the sidelines, knowing their children will be tired that evening. Calvin has always been a cautious child, so I expected him to stay relatively low to the ground, and he did, but he was tireless, keeping at long after the others had retired to the bouncy room. And in the free climb area he totally killed it, eventually conquering his anxieties and the wall itself to make it to the very top.

Now he wants a climbing membership.
