Writing Wrongs

Ah, spring, when a young man’s fancy turns to . . . the swing set.

Andrew is training Kyra in the art and craft of the swing set. She is, and I quote, “his Padawan learner.” Later, he confided to me, “She’s not really a beginner, more of an amateur.”

Here’s the windup. Notice Kyra’s not moving much at all.

The force is strong with this one.

Little trouble on re-entry.

Kyra seems wholly unconcerned about this lesson in aerodynamics. Maybe it’s because she’s seen it about ten times in that many minutes. Thankfully, she currently has better sense than to attempt a leap from her swing.
