The summer swimming season is here! Miss Jordan decided that she’d get experimental while we were in the pool. Two days in a row, she asked to use her activity arm and two different hands while we were there. First, she gave her swimming arm a try – it’s a little paddle that could give her extra pull. She was swimming last year without her helper arm… so it isn’t a must-wear item. But she decided to use it for splashing and having fun, but not a lot of actual swimming this past weekend.
She also used her hook hand to play on the monkey bars. I don’t have any pictures of her hanging on the monkey bars because she asked me to help carry her across every time. She created quite a spectacle at the pool while trying out the playground bars. I love that she’s willing to experiment with the tools she has. It’s almost been a year since we went to Chicago to build this special water-proof arm. I love that she’s still using it. Even better, I love that she’s asking to wear it.
Along with playing with helper arms, Jordan had a chance to play with her friends, enjoy the sun… and even a popsicle. Not a bad weekend I’d have to say.
