This week’s Project 366 is the first time I’m missing a day this year. With the dreary mornings and it being dark on leaving work, it does make it harder to find something to photograph. And it’s really boring photographing N doing his homework every day!
This week saw N loving reading and writing, and doing a lot of work off his own back. On Monday he was going over his phonics again from his reception year.
On Tuesday, I came out of work and with all the traffic decided to try and use the shutter function on my phone. For no tripod and just experimenting I was quite pleased. I think I’ll need to go out somewhere and try some more similar photos with my good camera – maybe a motorway bridge!
On Wednesday, I caught N and his dad watching something on the tablet. N just looks so happy that his dad’s taking a specific interest in something he enjoys.
N has been flying with his reading this week, so he’s managed to complete another reward sticker line. So this week he was trying to do as much as possible to gain more stickers. On Thursday he did his morning routine properly for the first time in ages…cleaning teeth, putting pyjamas under his pillow, making his bed and putting away all his teddies. They usually sit on his bed but not this week! All the books on his bedside table were replaced with his soft toys.
On Friday it was tennis again. N’s best friend isn’t doing tennis club anymore, but has started going at school, so they still get to play together a bit. It’s nice that N has a club that he does on his own though..well, with another friend/neighbour. After not really hitting a ball last week, this week was much better with them doing forehand and backhand cross court target practice. It’s amazing how quickly they grasp the concepts, even though they might not be able to connect accurately every time. Tennis was my main sport at school, but apart from playing down the road at home and playing swingball, I don’t recall playing until I was nearer 9 or 10.
On Saturday it was a glorious crisp autumn day. When we arrived at swimming the frosty leaves were all swept into 2 big clumps. Of course that meant having a walk in them.
What’ve you been up to this week?
