Jake played his last game of soccor for the year last week and we got it on video. They ended up in a 2-2 draw against a team that beat them pretty soudnly earlier in the year. Jake gave us a bit of a scare near the end when we thought he had mistakenly kicked the ball the wrong way while an opponent was running up on it. As it turns out (and the video bears this out) he meant to put the ball over the backline as to do anything else would have risked losing it and possibly the game. He was awarded player of the match for "being tricky" and thinking on his feet.
Jake also got a literacy award from Kindergarten yesterday. For improvement in his writing and for writing a sentence in a straight line. Well done Jake!
Lucy has been off sick for a few days (as has her mum) with a pretty awful cough that they are both on antibiotics for. They are sounding a lot better today.
