10 Things The Boy Learnt Last Month


As well as my own Learn Something New Every Day project (final instalment coming tomorrow), I also recorded something The Boy learnt each day through September. I thought it would be a nice memory of his first month at secondary school :)


I had plans to make a little album for him during September, but the sad demise of my photo printer scuppered those plans for now :( (Time constraints would have been a problem even if the printer had survived, of course!) I will make one - I have papers, embellishments and album at the ready! - but I need to get the photos sorted first. (And find a few spare moments...) Meanwhile, here's a selection of things he learnt last month:
  1. I have bigger feet than anyone thought.
  2. Nana's carrots are the best carrots in the world.
  3. A lot about my new school - and how much I'm going to have to carry...
  4. Every fortnight, there's going to be a difficult Thursday.
  5. How great art is!
  6. What seeing a kingfisher in real life feels like.
  7. I've been chosen to join the choir.
  8. Jack has a beard.
  9. Cats like going to school!
  10. Herons can fish using bread.
I'm looking forward to eventually putting this project together :) And I learnt a few new things from him, too!

Sounds like he's settled in really well - apart from every other Thursday - looking forward to seeing what else he's learnt!

There is always one day of the week worse than the others. Round here it's Mondays - with maths first and then double Physics. And now you are laughing, aren't you? because one man's meat is another man's poison..
