One of Leah S.’s second-grade students wrote a super cute story about climbing the rope at CFSBK, and Leah shared the story with us. Sophia is Charmaine E.’s daughter. We’ve also written the text of the story below, with a few minor edits…
The First Time I Climbed a 30-Foot Knotted Rope
By Sophia Hopkins
Me and my mom were walking to CrossFit where my mom works out. When we got there, I felt embarrassed. Everyone was staring at me. I bet they were curious to see what I can do.
My mom’s trainer asked, “Can you climb that knotted 30-foot rope?”
I said, “Yes, but I’m nervous!”
“It’s okay, maybe you need some time to stretch,” said Jess.
I thought, “Hmmmm, maybe I will climb the knotted rope.”
I asked, “Can a lot of adults climb that rope to the top?”
She said, “Not a lot.”
I said, “I will climb the knotted rope.”
But I was scared. I didn’t know what to do.
“What if I fall off?” I asked.
“Trust me, you won’t, ” said Jess. “I’ll put a mat under it.”
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 8, 9, 10 knots I clmibed. It was not scary, personally. I climbed it multiple times!
But the seventh time, it was time to go. I did not want to go. So I had to climb down the rope. We got our coats on and said bye.
