The Au Pair USA Fairfield County Cluster went rock wall climbing at the East Community Center for our November cluster meeting. And what an adventure it was!

A few of the au pairs balked at the idea (once they saw how high the rock wall was and how small the harnesses were!), however, I informed them that I was 20 years older than them and if I could do it, so could they!

Some, like me, struggled to get up the wall (it is much harder than it looks!) Others buckled into their harness and off they went up to the top and down making it look effortless!

Everyone was very supportive and encouraging and we cheered each other on and up the wall.

The staff at ECC was very helpful and provided us with tips and pointers as well safety instruction.

All in all, we had a fun time, a great workout and worked up an appetite for lunch!
