These are two weeks old and taken at our little zoo.Not everyone take pictures of their 10 year old climbing but it still thrills me to see Julia so strong and able. I love watching her reach and pull herself up, and be sure of what she is doing and where she is going.
Even last year at this time, she did not dare to go up . . .
and coming down was impossible.
She is even beginning to act like my taking pictures is not a terrible intrusion in her life. And oh, I am so happy.
