Summer is half over and we had a huge break-through at our home today! Kai learned how to pump his legs on the swings!!!!!! This may sound like a simple thing, but if you have young kids at home and have tried this YOU KNOW it can be frustrating! Kai has been working at this for about 8 months off and on as weather has permitted us outside to even be on swings. I'm so proud of him. I've been telling him that when he goes to Kindergarten the teachers will not push him, he must do it by himself (teachers will appreciate this I know).
After he was on the swings about 30 min. he says to me "Mom, you know what?" "I remember visiting my new school.... I don't think the school has any swings." I thought for a second....hmmmm.... I think he's right!!! We'll have to check to be sure! Made me laugh! At least he did it and he can hardly wait to show daddy! "Daddy will be amazed at me" Kai said! :)
By the way, Noah and Emmi are addicted to the swings too! Noah just wants to be pushed higher and higher! If I start to unbuckle Emmi from her little swing she starts to cry! Swings are a big hit at the Ushikubo home today!
