Benny had his friend Toby over for a play date last week. It was the first time he has attempted to climb a tree. They didn't climb too high, but he got a taste of tree climbing. Unfortunately the boys decided to climb the peach tree, which Nate is very protective of. While I encouraged the behavior, Nate put the kibosh on it. He's probably right. But as soon as Benny finds an appropriate tree-climbing replacement, he'll be back among the branches and leaves. And I'll be cheering him on (unless he climbs too high and I flash to him falling and cracking his head open - then it's over!).
