Last night we went to the senior school prize giving. Braden took away the ‘Top year 5 boy’ trophy for outstanding achievement academically and on the field. yea yea. That’s my boy! It’s a massive school so taking that home was a huge thing. Last night as I was saying goodnight to him he asked which parent he got his brains from. I told him it was obviously me. I used to be an A+ student right through school. Now I can barely remember where I parked the car. Clearly someone has my brains.
Jacob has rocked the school scene too. He successfully created his own seminar on the African Big Five. In years gone past I might have been dragged into nagging, guiding, nagging and helping. This year he works on Mac computers at school and his software isn’t compatible with my 5 year old windows laptop. I couldn’t help. He created a 20 minute seminar by himself, rocked the presentation and got a 3/4 score in all the judged aspects. Digital class, I love thee. I might be behind the times with my computer, but I can smile in the knowledge that it forced independence on my eldest.
On a scarier note, next year he’ll have ‘iPod touch’ on his class stationery list. Digital class – I still love thee, despite you sucking up all my flybuys points on iPod touches…
Dear Mr Watties. Last night as I was making dinner I discovered that the tomato sauce was coming out of the bottle really super fast. Upon investigation I discovered that you have made the hole in the lid BIGGER. Some young punk probably spent 4 years puking on himself at uni to think that clever idea up… bigger hole, use more sauce… Mr Watties, you haven’t heard the end of this.
WANTED: Clever uni student that has invested many years of pizza eating, mother energy drink consumption and setting sofas on fire to come up with a clever idea to stop the tomato sauce coming out of the tomato sauce bottle so fast. Prior tomato sauce experience essential.
Last but not least… links to the fun and the inspirational.
