Mid Year Catch Up - Epic!

Epic

That's what everything is, if you were wondering. Epic. "That was EPIC!" "Oh my gawd, that jump was EPIC!" "Wooo, EPIC fog!" "That was totally, EPIC dinner, Mum." 

You get the vibe? It's Epic. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find un-epic things in his orbit.

 

This kid is 7 now. Half way through Grade 2. Plays guitar, basketball and Little Athletics. He's in the Boys Aerobics Team at school, can swim a decent lap, ride his bike and jump off most things. He's also discovered that when placed in a cross country long distance scenario, he can run a long way, quickly!

  

S: "Sport is like my hobby."

M: "Yes, it is."

S: "...I thought you'd laugh at that." 

Life is an opportunity be noticed. To be "on". Cute now, but leaning towards wearing... Learning to "Pick his moments" is proving a little more difficult to master. But, like I said, he's only 7. 


He's just got his first mouthguard. Why does a kid who plays mostly non-contact sports need a mouthguard? Well, let's just say he tends to lead with his face!

Being uber competitive and aggressively tenacious will serve him well, in a lot of ways... or be his undoing. :-) 

To say he's all together too excited about the mouthguard, is an understatement. To say that I'm all together too amused that it makes him gag, falls into the same category.

He's got a great bunch of buddies. They're a fairly active lot.

It's hard when they start making their own friends - kids you haven't personally vetted. But so far, he's making pretty good choices.

All in all, so far, A good year!

3. Luna Park with Daddy, Mo, Mum and Arnie was a highlight. "The human/beachballs were, (can you guess?) EPIC!" 

2. Going to the top of the Eureka Skydeck with his Dad and brother.

1. Burying the Time Capsules. 

 

He turns 8 in October.

Ridiculous! 8? Who ever heard of such a thing?!
