Photo Story Friday — Believing
Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
My husband, Shane and I explored an incredible playground in a neighboring town during my computer-less week.
The climber itself is a giant pirate ship, and all the equipment goes along with that pirate/nautical theme.
Shane quickly worked out a little routine…
he’d clamber up the stairs,
race along the platforms,
I’d reach down and pull him up a ladder to the highest level,
and he’d launch himself down the biggest slide
to where Daddy waited below, cheering him on.
A few times he’d veer off and investigate an intreguing rope ladder, but either my husband or I would distract him away from it.
That was just a bit too advanced for him, we decided.
He was just too young to be able to handle that, yet.
That will teach me to ever underestimate this little boy.
If he believes he can take on a challenge, who am I to stand by and stop him,
to tell him that he can’t,
when he believes, wholeheartedly, that he can.
