23.3.12 - Climbing at the playground

We went to the playground in the evening. I was surprised that the boys were brave enough to climb up the slide and all the way over the monkey bar. In the past, they had only climbed 2 steps and then backed off.  I would credit it to the weekly gymnastics class that they have been attending for over a month. Initially, during the gym class, they would learn a new skill and then practice and when they do it well, they gain more and more confidence. All that jumping, tumbling and balancing gave them more confidence.

They went over the monkey bars to the other side.  

S climbed up to the top of the slide and went into the slide from the top. I also suggested that they find another way to use the slide and they slid down on their bellies instead.
