Climbing Day

No school Election Day. We booked a session with an instructor at this super cool climbing gym in Fairfield. The boys LOVED it! Luca was a natural. Max wasn't comfortable going high up the walls, but he still enjoyed it and wanted to take multiple turns climbing the areas he was comfortable with. Luca, on the other hand, was scouting the whole place for the next best challenge after each climb he conquered!

First run - he looked out this giant window when he got to the top...

Totally fearless Luca!

Even the Mamma tried it!

Clear Ice Salute!

Latest science project at home:  making crystal clear spherical ice cubes.  Tonight we had our first true success thanks to a new high temperature freezer.  Cheers!
