12/16/2005: "Up and down the fire pole"
Duncan climbed up to the platform and slid down again, much to the delight of the mother and her two teens watching. She said he reminded her of a tree frog with his technique. Another school group coming through later was also quite impressed with his ability to get up and down. No one else was able to make it that high while we were there.

That's neat. There is nothing like watching our little ones succeed and do something well. There is added satisfaction when they do do better than someone or anyone else does. the shorts really look different. Our highs lately have been 13! The lows are around zero.
I just sent an e-mail off to you to tell you that Dad mailed your Chirstmas presents today (Saturday). Please let us know when they arrive. I hope one week is enough time to go that far.
I had sent off about an hour or so ago a reply to David's open house. It didn't come back. Go figure. :)

Téa, I thought this quote fit what we talked about:
Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fiber of character but strengthen it. Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
