(Final instalment of Summer 2012)
1st Place for Frisbee Genius
I can not deny the fact that I use the iPod as a babysitter now and again, maybe a little too much as my son has developed a talent for playing the game Frisbee. He turns and directs the frisbee through various courses collecting awards and unlocking levels to the amusement and amazement of many. I’m certain he would be top of the leader board for under 10’s. Check this out!
William deserves a Gold Medal
It was a great surprise to us all when William decided he wanted to toilet train himself in 3 days! Fortunately, those were during the few sunny days we had, so nappy off and in the garden we went. He declared “wee” in advance of the act and soon mastered number twos as well (after a few accidents on the back door step and flower bed!). He has been such a good boy and his reward for doing wee wee’s and poo’s on the toilet has been 5 minutes on the iPod which he thinks is the best treat ever. Within four weeks he was (almost) dry at night and has shocked us all with initiating this developmental milestone.
Olympic & Paralympics London 2012
I can’t talk about Summer 2012 without mentioning the dreadful weather, in summary: RAIN. The Great British public were moaning and miserable, but a smile was put back on our faces when the Olympics and Paralympics arrived in London – what a treat we all had! Many of us were dreading the embarrassment of the opening ceremony, but in actual fact it was the most amazing event which left us all feeling proud to be British. The GB team did fantastically well in the Olympics and Paralympics, both coming 3rd and leaving the country inspired and in-love with new role-models such as Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Nicola Adams.
I know it’s a rather tenuous link to my post, but this bible verse is important all the same. Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 1 Corinthians 9:24 ESV
