Can you believe our family (including ALL the kids) rappelled a 300-foot waterfall? If you don’t believe me make sure and watch our video because we got it all on camera! I have to admit at first I was a bit worried about this crazy waterfall rappel we signed up for. This is when mom’s fear kicked in (hoping the mechanics would work) as I watched my kids descend the 300-foot waterfall.
Rappelling A Waterfall
If you have never been rappelling before, something you need to know is that the only thing keeping you from dropping to the ground, hundreds of feet below, is a rope attached to your harness. It is both thrilling and terrifying, especially for those of us who are afraid of heights!
I am so proud of my kids for trying this rappelling adventure! Many of them (including my youngest, Cora) seemed to have no fear and rappelled like it was nothing! But for others, it was a bit harder. I am especially proud of Evee, who despite her fears decided all on her own that she would do the 300-foot rappel.
Planning Your Humanitarian Trip
When we teamed up with Family Humanitarian and talked about the service and good we wanted to help with and accomplish, we didn’t realize how much fun was incorporated into the schedule as well. Our family loves to do service, but as you know we are adrenaline junkies as well. That’s why this trip has been our favorite trip yet.
Humanitarian Efforts from Home
I loved the opportunity we had to help with the humanitarian building projects. As part of our efforts, we are raising money to build more wells in Uganda. Every $1 donated provides clean, fresh water to 1 person for LIFE! You can donate here!
