Skydiving

Yesterday Rich and I and Alex went to the Snohomish airport to watch Nicole and a group of her friends skydive. They went up in four different loads. Nicole was in the last load so we were there until 7:00 pm. What an awesome experience. As we watched each load go, climb, jump and land. I really wanted to do it. It was too expensive otherwise I would have gone with my daughter. You jump in tandem with an instructor. My daughter's anxiety grew with each load that went up and came back. By the time she was on the plane she started to cry she was so afraid, then she said her instructor had to peel her hands away from the door to jump! She said once they jumped it was awesome! She also said she is glad she did it but will never do it again...

I love her spirit...
I love her courage...
I love her persistence...
I love her honesty with fears...
I love bonding with her in these moments...

That is so cool that you went with her. You are a good mom :) She is very brave, courageous and adventuresome.....I think she did get those things from you.......

You have more adventure in you than me. So far, I haven't found the inspiration it would take to jump out of a plane. I love hearing you talk about your daughter. I so hope to have this kind of a relationship some day with mine.
