To keep trying
To look up when falling
To keep smiling


To not give up
Even when it seems completely


Not always easy
May take lots of hard work
Worth it, I hope


Letting them try
Watching them fall over
Not showing panic


Family brewery
Ales to be drunk by the pint
Frothy white head


These haiku are all on the theme of courage and linked up at carpe diem.  Most of them relate to the photo.

Yes, everyday courage - what an adorable little girl you have! Hard to watch them fall on the ice. It always sends a zap of pain thru me as well.

Yes, Let them discover a little pain. It's in the process of learning in growing up. Our presence is only to give inputs on safety and to make sure they follow. Nicely Emma!
