For four days we partook in a variety of activities and the children insisted we adults join in a few. So, instead of running seven miles at the weekend I fenced, abseiled and screamed down a zip wire. I ache in brand new places.
|Jumping down the abseiling tower.|
"Miss Walter! Quick! The rope is breaking!"
"Quick Miss, it's fraying!"
Needless to say - that time I didn't have so much fun!
Altogether it was a great weekend, although I am very grateful to our headteacher for allowing today off to recover!
One of the instructors said something to one of my colleagues over the weekend that stayed with us all:
"Challenge yourself to do more."
How many of us are complacent with what we can do and do not make the effort to extend ourselves in some way? Perhaps we should all try to do a little more?
