Trampoline

*Just wanted to say and big THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my last post on literature for boys. I will be buying some of the books recommended and Little-N will be very happy.*

Little-N isn't very sporty or physical, he prefers to sit and read a book than to run about or play football. I recently bought him a big trampoline so that he can have some daily physical exercise [secretly I bought it for me!]. It's really funny to watch him, he really enjoys bouncing up and down with his long hair flopping about and that's about it, he's as stiff and wood. All the other boys who have had a try on it have done 'somersaults' 'seat drops' and many other fancy moves. Little-N however is proud of his bouncing and occasional bottom landing. Over the next few weeks I'll be adding more things to the garden so that Little-N and my other students can have a variety of physical activities to explore.

And something to get lil N to look up more often:

Blue- Thank you for the links will definitely look into buying them for Little-N.

Hellooooo!

Awww, i just stumbled back to your blog & realised how much I have missed following the adventures of you & Little-N....... & my Montessori days.

I'm thinking that there are more in the future for me. Hopefully! Fingers crossed.

How are you?
