E Friday - swings

In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post three photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics. Well, I like to look at them also.

Today let’s do E on the swing. She really likes to sit in the two swings we have in the peach tree out in the back yard, as well as the swings at the park. Unfortunately she is just not big enough to sit up comfortably in the bigger kids swings, though she tries. Usually she lays in it looking at the ground.

That’s our typical southwestern playground, lots of stuff to climb on, shade over some of it, sand and the concrete is covered with two inches of something made out of ground up rubber so that it’s soft to fall on.

Out in our back yard it’s about the same.

But she likes swinging back and forth, and can stay out there for quite a while, just swinging and looking at the grass. She can put her feet down and push off to keep swinging on her own like this. But if you help her sit in it she can hold on to the ropes and stay up. Hasn’t learned to pump her feet to keep going so somebody has to be out there pushing, but she likes this too.
