Swing Dynamics

Margaret and Ellie have been doing a great deal of thinking about swings.  They've been figuring out how often they can get adults to push them in the swings; Leo and I both believe that they should learn to pump their legs, and so we advocate for that, but these children of ours are quick to identify easy marks among the other adults of their acquaintance, and exploit them should they walk into the yard.

So beware.

Anyway, Margaret is resistant to the idea that she should make the swings go all on her lonesome, and so she is endeavoring to invent a fun swing-based activity that requires little effort on her part and doesn't necessitate adult involvement.

It's a work in progress.
