Soccer Day #2

After I last posted, Blake played 4 more games. He had a brilliant day. The sun shone (forgot the sunscreen, oops) the skies were blue, and the kids worked together and worked hard. Blake called it the best school day ever.

Blake and James worked really well together.

Soccer Day Part 1

Blake’s a third grader now and that means SOCCER DAY!!! Twice a year, grade threes from all over Shanghai come together to play tons and tons and tons of soccer! 6 games in one day.img_4765

After the first game they did their “good game, good game, good game.”

In the second game Blake scored a cracking goal.

I didn’t catch the goal on film (because I was screaming my head off) but it was a beaut. He ran dribbled up the side from half and slotted it in the far left corner.

I did, however, catch a lot of the celebration.

Ga Ga Ball

The newest craze at SAS is GaGa Ball. Last year we played it in a makeshift pit made out of mats, this year we have our very own GaGa ball professional pit and it is a huge hit.

It’s like dodgeball with one ball. If you get hit on your legs, you’re out. You try to get others out by slapping the ball towards them. No double hits. No holding. It’s a fast, fun games.

Blake loves it and plays every day.1 2

Spotted this in the hallway. It’s news to me that Blake is claustophobik. And you have no idea how happy it makes me that two eight year old boys describe themselves as graceful.

Early morning pictures

At 6:45 this morning there was a knock on the door and in walked Mimi asking if she could hang out because her parents were in meetings. ABSOLUTELY. We had a lot of fun and took some photos too.

FIRST DAY OF GRADE 3!!

The first day of school was soooooo hot. In fact the first two weeks of school (that’s how late this post it) have been sooooooo hot. When my camera goes from a cold house to the hot air, pictures look like this:

But I’m happy I have this pic of my two favourite guys getting ready for their big day. Blake as a 3rd grader. Scott as a brand new AD!

Blake is in 3TS, with Tyson Spraul as a teacher. He helps the kids pronounce his name by telling them it rhymes with owl. ┬áBlake has some lovely kids in his class from years past… Zoe, Luca, James, Charlotte, Haohan, Frank and lots more. He and Lucas have been in the same class 5 years in a row!!!pot - 1 pot - 2Blake has a lot of new teachers in his support crew this year. New to him.
