This afternoon, the girl scout troop went to the Adventure Park at Sandy Spring Friends School, which is advertised as "the largest aerial forest adventure park in North America"--basically a giant complex of ropes course type activities and zip lines put together into trails up in the treetops.
What fun the girlie had! This was a challenge for every girl. I saw just
about every troop member push herself to a place she thought she could
not succeed and then push on past fear. Our girlie had one element that
she fell on (caught by the safety harness) twice trying to cross, and
when given the choice of going back or trying again, she chose to try
again. Tears turned to smiles as the third time she made it across.
What a confidence building experience this was for the girls. I was so proud to see them each so brave.
