Learn Something New Everyday Day 1

Are you taking part in Learn Something New Everyday over at

I signed up for Learn Something New Everyday (hereafter known as LSNED) a couple of years ago and the great thing about Shimelle's classes is that once you are signed up that is it for however many times the class runs.  LSNED is a September class and this will be my third time trying to do it.  The first year I manged something like 4 layouts for the class and ended up just doing a montage layout with tiny photos at the end because I couldn't keep up.  Last September was a particularly sad one for our family and something happened slap bang in the middle which made it difficult to get motivated.  This year I'm hoping I can stay on track.

Anyway off we go with Day 1 in which I learnt that my little man is not so much a little man anymore and is turning into a bit of a daredevil.

We went to a park with one of those spider web climbing things and he would usually just stay at the bottom but this time he was like grease lightning.  I stood his scooter up at the side of me and got my phone out of my pocket, pressed the hipsta button and looked up.  He was almost at the top and wanted to know how to get to the very top point!

This photo scares me because he was just holding on with one hand and looking at the view. 

I guess he is growing up.

sometimes the fearlessness of the young ones makes us cringe. it is so important to let them spread their wings while also trying to ensure their safely. good for you for managing to let him do this activity.

It does make your stomach flip a bit when you see them doing something like that, I looked down the garden as she was going really high on her swing, but like you say, it's all part of growing up.
