Today Alex had a go on the basket swing on his own. He was going pretty much vertical – face straight down to the ground! Squeaks and shouts of excitement! He loved it!



He also climbed straight up the slide climbing frame – A rather large spaced “ladder” like scaffold. I had my hands ready to catch him, but over the weeks I have helped him, and today he did it himself….several times.

Okay…there is no photo of the climbing frame, as on that one time, after several successful climbs, he fell a couple of feet down onto the bark chippings. A few tears of shock, a spit out of chippings and he was back onto the frame – no injuries, fear!

The slide has a bar going across the top. Alex normally holds it to then bring his feet around under him into position. Today though he was so excited, he grabbed the bar and swung under it and threw his feet forward….let go of the bar and landed 1/4 of the way down the slide at top speed! I thought his grin would touch his ears! He went straight around again and again after that!
