Do you remember your first courageous time sliding down a daring waterslide? You slowly climbed up the stairs to the start of the slide and anxiously awaited the kids in front of you taking the plunge, covertly looking over the edge to make sure their trip was successful. Then, when you finally mustered up the courage to head down the slide, you splashed into the pool and felt a thrill that made you want to go again, and again, and again!
