Go Ape!

When I am blogging about fostering and adoption I tend to talk about Ella, babies and younger children. When actually we nearly always have living with us teenagers as well. Why don't I include them more? Well, simple, they're teenagers! They eat, mix with peers, sleep, and repeat. And that's what they chose to do. But every now and then we manage to persuade them out of their pits and do something a bit more interesting. This was one of those occasions :)

We arranged to take the boys, both 14, to Go Ape. One of the boys was a bit anxious, afraid of heights, so we just said, do what you can. Because of their age they had to have a responsible adult keep them coming while being Tarzan. However I couldn't go, and Jeff had to stay on the ground to look after baby, so our lovely friend Jeanette volunteered, although we all questioned describing her as responsible ;)

They loved it - and yes, the anxious one did everything :)

  1. That's cool! Climbing and monkeying around with a safety harness is much better than riding pine saplings free style.

  2. WOW! You would not get me on those though. They opened a small one at the Heritage Gardens in Sandwich. Heard it's expensive. Definitely for kids and more fit adults!

    1. Me neither Jo! That's partly why I arranged it for them while I couldn't make it LOL! It wasn't cheap - find all those big activity places are so flaming expensive! x
