Another Ethan first: He climbed up into a hay loft.

The ladder leading from the barn to the loft on our friend’s farm was not meant for young children: the spacing between rungs was as long as Ethan’s arm. “How do I get up there?” The answer was one rung at a time, with instruction on where to move the next hand or foot. Ethan quickly figured it out, and with close spotting below and some assistance from above to get off the ladder, Ethan was soon in a world of hay.
