The week has gone by fast. Now that the half term is over he will go back to school refreshed I hope. He was really tired a week or 2 before the term ended. Reading books which he usually likes became a chore. He started hating doing maths and just seeing numbers makes him stress. So this half term we did not do any assignments or school related stuff. By the middle of the week he went back to reading by himself. Finishing the last few pages of his Harry Potter book and started on the next one.
We spent the half term hovering around the sea front (Saturday Night Live) and the local park (Bursting With Light) as always. We also went to Bristol for a day out (Half Term Request). And he loves that day to bits and is already requesting for us to go back! The next day we went to the arcade and got Disappointed for not winning.
I was guilty before I started writing this post because I feel like I am a disappointment that I weren't able to bring him anywhere exciting and fun. Then writing everything down made me realized that though we didn't travel a lot we did had fun. Nothing grand but just enough activity and play for him to be ready for another school term.
And today the weather is nice enough for us to venture further at the seafront without being blown away. We walked in the mud, walked on top of the marine lake bridge with water flowing (its like waterfall but horizontal!) and looked at the boats that never seemed to move this winter. We also heard a seagull sing (made a noise) a part of a song that we both know. Its so weird hearing that seagull. We just look at each other knowing that we heard the same tune. I told him that I should have taken a video or something but its too late, I said that that one moment is strictly for us to share. The song is the ensemble chorus of This Is Me (from The Greatest Showman movie) if you are interested.
New school term? Bring it on (I think =P).
