This afternoon John went with me to pick the kids up from school. Their school has a great playground--with two zip-lines, three or four slides, monkey bars and of course, the swings. My kids all love to swing and eventually we all found ourselves at the swingset. Abbey has recently learned to pump her legs to keep herself moving (great news for mom and dad!) and she is so proud of her accomplishment. I decided to hop on the swing next to Will, and being the competitors that we are, it quickly turned into a contest to see who could propel themselves the highest. My son won even though he told me that my weight was to my advantage. Just what a mom wants to hear! The kids and I were all swinging side by side while John patiently gave everyone a push every so often. There's something about swinging that is so relaxing. My kids could swing for hours on end (and often do) and I think I could join them. It was the best part of my day!
