For someone who wouldn't even put her bare feet on the grass a year ago, Madi has come a long way! She has a real competitive streak and when she saw a group of kids climbing this huge pohutakawa tree, she said "I am going to do it!" We all said that she was too small and it probably wasn't a good idea, but we let her try, thinking she would go a little way and then ask to get down. But, no, she was so focused and determined and reached the hollow, about 10 feet up. She yelled out "I did it! I am so happy!" We all told her that we were so proud of her!!
