A Walk to the Park: 01/16/05
As this is Ian's last Sunday before the Spring semester begins, he stayed home with us rather than going out to study or do homework. After breakfast the three of us walked down to the San Felipe Park to "swing-slide" as Sean puts it. There were lots of other kids there of a variety of age ranges. Sean had fun sliding down all the various slides and sometimes climbing back up them backwards.
Later he got into a swinging contest with another two year old. Actually it was more of a pushing contest between the two fathers but the two kids really seemed to enjoy their time in the swings. Sean shouted repeated orders to go higher. He has enjoyed swinging since he was four months old.
Sean has also mastered the arched ladder. He used to get stuck at the top of the curve but today he remembered to stand up rather than climb up with his hands on the rungs in front. He first practiced on the one designed for children his age (the curve is inversed and the rungs are closer together) and then went on to tackle the bigger version. It's so thrilling to watch him learn new things like this!
