Monkeying Around

Rachel's PE class has been getting baseline information on physical skills - running, push ups, sit ups, etc. One day this week, they did chin ups. Rachel hooked part of her left arm over the bar for balance, lowered her right arm, and then pulled her body up high enough to chin the bar. Six times. More than any other kid in her grade and more than the majority of kids in the building.  Rae gets to claim the title of Chin Up Queen!

So in honor of Miss Muscles, we went to the park this evening to document one of Rachel's favorite activities: climbing on top of the tall monkey bars.

It is quite a feat of strength and perseverence and Rae does it whenever she gets a chance. Katherine may have been born in the year of the monkey, but Rachel is my Monkey Girl!
 
 
Ta-dah!!!
