Facing Fears & Jumping Off Docks

Grandson Ben having fun. For those of you who have followed my blog for a long time, you know of the medical problems he had when he was only 4 years old. Now he’s 10, about to turn 11, and he’s doing great.

While recently at the lake (see my previous post, “Lake Life”), my 10 year old son, and his cousin of the same age, decided to try jumping from the second story of the dock. Don’t worry, the dock was designed for this, with a special gate opening up at the top, and the water was more than deep enough! It took just a couple minutes of coaxing them into it and cheering them on once they were standing over the edge, but once they worked up the courage, and faced their fears, they did it over and over again!

Check out these time lapse pictures of my son jumping, and a fun little YouTube video we put together for his channel, BenTube.
