The Prairie Kid was in a weekly craft and swimming class at the rec center. When the class ended I would let him swim for awhile. Two weeks ago several kids tried to talk him into going on the big slide. He wouldn't have anything to do with it.
Today I looked up and saw him following the little girl that he was in class with that also stayed to swim longer. For whatever reason The Prairie Kid changed his mind and followed her up the slide stairs. I watched with anticipation thinking "will he actually do it?"
He did! And I was waiting at the bottom to hoot and holler and, of course, take his picture.
