My oldest daughter loves a good climbing tree. She would squeal with excitement when she found one. She would then stand under it staring up as if to develop a plan in her head to accomplish the climb to the top! She would calculate her climb very carefully. This is kind of how she approaches life as well. She loves a challenge and is definitely not afraid to go to great heights to achieve it! She is careful and wise plotting her path with great confidence and ease. It is a beautiful thing I am privileged to witness.
This would not be a good climbing tree!
I'm thinking a good tree for a swing!
So as you step outside today take a good look at the trees around you! Do you have any good climbing trees? How would you attempt to climb a tree? Some may inquire how Mama Holli might climb a tree? ......She just grabs a limb, starts climbing and figures it out as she goes along!

A heavenly place all Mamas should visit at least once!
