Pyjama Day

The Boy Child was poorly yesterday.
Nothing serious, thankfully, but enough to warrant a day off school.
There was plenty of lolling around.
 There was some school reading.
There was a Science lesson from The Brainy One on circuits and solar energy.
There were plenty of FIFA World Cup stickers.
I love that the Brazilians have a player on their team called Fred.
The Boy Child is back at school today.
Buoyed by the knowledge that there will be cricket this afternoon.
And that the Summer Fayre is tomorrow afternoon.
He didn't want to miss either of them.
The Year 2 Assembly he missed taking part in yesterday?  Far too miserable to care.

remember a couple of weeks ago you left me a comment saying how you loved that our experiences of childhood seemed similar ...

I have here a sick boy buoyed by thoughts of cricket, stickers and a footballer named Fred. Hope your sick boy feels up to that cricket. Mine took his puffers and his antibiotics, went out and scored his game and came home to bed

Pleased that today is a better day.

Glad to hear he's made a speedy recovery! Football stickers are big in our house too...with the 18 year old!

It fascinates me how 'advanced' children are in their learning these days ... I wonder is it because we are having children later ourselves and come to the job with more education ourselves or is it because information is so much more readily available now?
I have some examples of my work at similar ages to our children and truly, they leave me for dead!

Hope he's continuing to improve :)

Glad to hear he is better today I remember those days . There was always a football sticker album involved and a film of some sort. My youngest always watched Forrest Gump every single time x

That's quite a programme to take part in when you're poorly - I am sure I wouldn't have learnt as much as that at school at his age! You clearly give him lots of great opportunities. Hoping he's better now ...
