I have been trying to explain, demonstrate, push and encourage Josh into swinging by himself. I just thought he should know by 5 yrs old, and 6 is creeping up on us, how to swing by himself. You know you think that the basic concept is easy, but I guess it is one of those riding on a bike kinda things, once you get the feel it just CLICKS. He was doing this keep my body stiff and rock back and forth on the seat kinda thing. This week he gets home from school and he is swinging. So it was probably some kid from school that taught him, but I laid a lot of ground work and Josh practiced. Yeah, HE FINALLY GETS IT!
