This weekend my 7 year old wanted to learn how to swing. Some of his friends can swing on the playground at school without any help and he wanted to be able to join them. We went to the park and practiced. After about 15 minutes he got the hang of it. Once he got about 5 feet high he jumped off. "That was fun" he announced.
And he did it again. Only the next time he went higher.
He got back on the swing. He went just a little bit higher still and jumped off yet again.
I have a feeling I'm going to get a call from the nurse's office this week.
