7-y-o has been trying to climb to the top of the rope in gymnastics for a couple of weeks now (I think it's 15-20 ft high). For added incentive, I told him and his brother that when they make it to the top, I'll take them out for an ice-cream sundae. Wouldn't you know that the week after I throw down the challenge, C crushed it! He made it to the top of the rope on his first try. As per C's wishes, we had a sundae bar at home right after we picked up his new skis. If the weather holds up tomorrow, I think that we'll definitely be using the new skis.
