My husband is a climbing junkie. Which, if you know the world of rock climbers, it’s really the only way to be. Because if you’re not obsessed with it, you’re really not into it.

Not only is he fanatical, he also claims that this is his church and there is nothing more holy than touching the rock. I don’t know about that one, but I do know that he comes back a new person every time he climbs either at the gym or on site.
His goal is to get our son (s) into it as much as he is. His reasoning for it is that chances are our boys will align themselves with other climbing buddies and have less of a chance to get involved in drugs and other bad things. I’m all for that.
Plus, since we’re on the move quite often, living in different countries, it’s a great way to make instant friends.
But with all big ideas and cool thoughts, it starts with the first steps. B boy and International Dad have been going to the gym, La Rocalla in Guatemala City, for a while now. And International Dad has even ventured out with our son to the rock. But that didn’t work out too well, because to get to the climbing site you have to walk at least 20 minutes. And like all kids, B boy is not at all into that!
So after a few times at the gym, B boy has begged me to come and see them climb with K boy.
