Lanzarote - The Return

Harry, Charlie and Jasper's new best friend



We were not sure Charlie was going to come home with us at one point.  Family loyalties broken at Kids Club and in the pool :)

I have never thought it very sensible to post blogs when we are away saying where we are for loads of reasons, so I will post a few over the next few days about our holiday in Lanzarote last week.

Ashmolean Museum - Oxford

Great time at the Ashmolean Museum

The boys rushed off to find all the Elephants in our Elephant hunt.  Then sat down and made crowns as part of the Kings and Queens family event after a tour.

"Cause Yes"

Question: "Jasper, why are you doing that"
Jasper:     "Cause Yes"

You can't argue with that

Football Player Of Week

Charlie got football player of the week award for his age group at his Saturday morning football coaching session.  Well done Charlie.  You have to work hard out there in the cold and wet for two hours to get the award.

Cleaning your teeth and sounding like Daddy

Charlie did make me laugh the other day.  I was helping him clean his teeth (putting the toothpaste on the electric brush).  He has been cleaning his own teeth of a while now with the aid of the electric toothbrush.  Anyway he wanted me to do the cleaning on this night and I said something like "It's something you are going to have to get used to as you will be cleaning your teeth for the rest of your life at least twice a day".  To which he responded and every time since
"Oh.. I don't want to clean my teeth for the rest of my life"

Listening to a Charlie aged 4 talking about the rest of his life cracks me up.

Harry also made us laugh with his use of English today.  We all looked at him after he has finished a sentence and commented on how much he sounded like me (Daddy).  Again it was the construction of the English and the words used, something like

"On that occasion blah blah, and on next occasion blah blah"

You had to be there, the strange thing was the fact that Harry sounded so mature for that moment and it was so out of place. I am sure this will not make sense to anyone else than me, but I am putting those funny things you would otherwise forget in this blog for our benefit as much as anyone else.
