While our days are mainly filled with vineyard work for now, we do take time to play. The following shows a glimpse of the lightheartedness of our boys. They have a healthy (I hope!) competitive spirit amongst them. I must admit though, sometimes they are a bit too daring for my mother’s heart.

In our backyard, John hung a rope swing that is 35 – 40 feet high from a pecan tree branch. Swinging is one thing but they decided to climb all the way to the top. Having been called outside to watch the performance, I had to laugh as they each had to outdo their younger brother.

Starting with the youngest son, a simple halfway up the rope climb was sufficient.

Then, all the way to the top for the next oldest.

Wait, I can climb without using my legs!

Finally, how about an upside down climb – all the way to the top!

And, not to be left out, our youngest daughter … well, she was content to just swing.

  1. Your boys are so daring and playful!

  2. I have to say that each was impressive in their own way, but to climb upside down really blows me away. I love your mini bio about yourself and family. May God bless you as you seek to serve Him in your own way. – Pat
