Up a tree, and loving it

Daniel Sluis, 7, the son of Gordon and Jennifer Sluis, climbs down a magnolia tree in the front yard of the family’s home on Short Cherry Street Tuesday. Daniel said he has been climbing the same tree for two years and he has been climbing other trees in the family’s yard since his mother taught him how to climb when he was 3 years old.
