Rock climbing with a three year old

When my little nephew Wy comes over, I learn to view things in and outside of my house with new eyes.

Everyday, I drive past these rocks that are out in my front yard and don’t really give them much thought. My husband put them in the yard as a landscaping feature and I have just kind of gotten used to having them there.

But on this beautiful, sunny and warm day  – I took Wy around to the front yard and there he found the big rocks.

A rock climbing adventure

As soon as he saw them, his expression was priceless and off he went on a rock climbing adventure. A little uncertain at first as to how to navigate the big gaps between rocks but it wasn’t long before he discovered he could make the leap and soon he was leaping easily from rock to rock.

And up and down the rocks, all the while never letting go of his bright blue bottle (which I will talk about very soon).

I have a new appreciation for the rocks out in our front yard. My husband may have put them there to look pretty but through the eyes of a three year old, it is an adventure in rock climbing.

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
