  2. Higher the swing greater the impact of the fall!! But we did have a crazy childhood!!

  4. Lol...guess this was not unusual. I stopped when one day flopped on my stomach and those darn buttons with metal anchors were on my jacket and wounded me. Then became afraid of it. But still remember like I was flying for a second or two. Thank you for the visits. I will be visiting all.

  7. This was the best thing to do on the swings--although I found that I enjoyed jumping not from the highest point, but from the point farthest forward. That way it really launched you straight and you got tons of air time, but it didn't hurt when you landed. :)

  9. You really flew for a few seconds, must have been very exciting feeling Maggie, I only swung as high a possible but all the while holding on to the swing, and only asked to be pushed higher :D

    1. You know, Ann, I didn't know that until now in reading these comments. I was very isolated. When I was 5 living on an Army base, no kids my age. Spent hours on the swings. Had no idea it was something normal. Thank you ♥
