Swinging Sunday

Last weekend, E got to do a very small amount of sledding b/c we got a couple inches of snow. This weekend, it was 80 degrees and beautifully sunny. Perfect weather for swinging!

We've been trying to teach Elena to swing herself--pumping her legs back and forth to keep going. Before the surgery, Elena "stiffened up" anytime she was engaging her upper body--which meant pumping her legs while holding on to a moving swing didn't happen.

After the surgery...well, it took 20 minutes.

How cool is THAT?!

Wow, that is awesome! She is going to be so psyched to be able to swing herself, and I bet she is so proud of herself!
Great pics and posts!
