Especially if they haven't played with each other for 5 months!!
We picked up one of Alex's old classmates from school today, his name is Charlie and I think he's even crazier than Alex, so the both of them put together with a load of over excitement to top it off meant it was quite a stressful afternoon! but it was so nice to see Alex finally having some proper fun with a friend :)
We went to the park near the school, messed around for a bit, it was SO HOT! so we had a vote and it was a 3 to 1 vote to go up into town to buy an ice cream each (Jamie didn't want to).
Alex and Charlie had their scooters and of course thought they'd try and impress eachother to see how dangerous they could be, and how good stuntman they are, all the way there and back.......it was VERY stressful to say the least, lets just say, if they stay friends, there's no way on this earth I'd ever let them out on their own together, not at this rate anyway!
when we got home and they calmed down a little they had lots of fun blowing bubbles and catching them in the garden, and playing on the trampoline.
The morning was the complete opposite, I had to go to the dentist to have a cracked filling repaired, leaving Alex and Amelia in the waiting room playing with some Lego....when I returned the receptionist remarked that they'd never had such well behaved children there!! It still amazes me.
We manged to fit in a little picnic in the garden at lunchtime(Alex made his own chicken mayonaise and pitta bread) - trying to make the most of the nice weather before it all goes horrible again :(
Also found out that he can start Beavers next week, in the same group as Charlie, I'm really pleased, they're going to Ashwell Spings to mess around in the water, Alex should love it!
So I'm not sure about the learning today, but Alex had a good helping of fun :)
