Academic Update

This is taken last March - been practicing his multiplication table.  His maths skills are improving and can't complain, really.

The Tatapilla is really doing good at school.  He's in level 29 in reading.  

School will be back in a fortnight - he won't be able to finish it to the last day though as we're leaving for an OS trip a month before the school ends.


It's school holidays and the Tatapilla has been staying home.  Nothing much was planned as I can't take anymore days off from work.  We're just making the most of weekends.  Even then, there are a lot of chores to do that we hardly go out.  

It's no matter with our little boy though.  He's happy to play at home with a neighbour friend.  

Last weekend though we went to an event in our area.  Watched fireworks and played around the paddocks.

Football Boots

I called them my mother's day presents for this year.  Why?  Because he got them on Mother's day.  And what did I get?  I can't even remember.  :)

And just like everything else that he owns, it's all the type.  He's been using them and taking them to school for a few weeks.  Now?  I'm not even sure where are they.  I was told, they're on the shoe rack. At least, they're at home.  

But yeah, we are planning on joining him to soccer next year.  

By the way, these are called football cleats.

Not a Happy Week

the flu season is here and the Tatapilla was just subjected to it.  He's missed school for three days.  I have convinced him to go to school on Friday despite of the sniffles.  Share the love, I'd say. 

So while not in school, he'd been tagging along with Dad or staying home with granddad.  

He's a lot better now but still got those pesky sniffles and blocked nose.  He doesn't like taking meds which I am really okay with.  I reckon, he needs rest more than any meds.

One evening, the Tatapilla said he has a surprise for me that I will really like.  He presented me this certificate.

The non-fiction text was about frogs, what time of animal are they, where do they live and what do they eat.  The class read a book and then they have summarise what they learned.  Kudos, my son!


I came out of the bathroom one morning and noted that the Tatapilla had been on the ipad.  I didn't know what was he up to until I checked later on.  45 selfies.. really!

Obviously, he likes looking at himself.  Self-love isn't bad, is it?  but 45, really? :)
