This boy is currently obsessed with monkey bars and swings.

He surprised me one day when he showed me that he had mastered the bars.  Apparently he’d been practicing for a week straight during recess.  Now when we pick him up from school, there he is, out on the playground, practicing.  Every day, no fail.

And out of nowhere, after trying to teach him how to pump his legs on the swing (and giving up because he just wasn’t ‘getting it’) he surprised me again!

Now we have a very strict criteria when going to the park:  it must have monkey bars (of some sort) AND swings.  No exceptions.

Unfortunately, that only leaves us with a few (out of a HUGE variety of fabulous parks) within a 5 mile radius.
