Julian conquered his fear!!!

Two years ago we were at Stratham Fair and Julian wanted to climb the rock wall. He got about 1/3 of the way up and got scared and came down. Today at the Rock n Ribfest he finally conquered his fear. He stood in line and patiently waited his turn. He got about half way up and came back down again. He had chosen one of the harder spots to climb and had a hard time getting his holds. He looked up at the wall after he came down and said. "I'll try again later, I'll make it then." So, a couple of hours later we went back over and he again waited in line for 15 or 20 minutes and tried again. He finally made it to the top. He was so proud of himself. He had a couple of tricky spots but got over them no problem. He was determined to make it this time. At one point near the top he actually did a bit of a jump to get up to one of the higher holds. He caught it and climbed the rest of the way up. Nice job Julian!!!
