Eli wanted his party at the airforce museum. It was great. They learnt to salute, march, do PT, jump out of planes etc. Fantastic boys stuff. The person leading the party was not amused when the boys kept talking of the "army party" they were having. She kept having to say AIRFORCE!!!

As usual the boys get up to interesting things. This school holidays it was all about pirates. They spent $2 and for that they got a gun, an eye patch and a pirate earring. Eli then discovered a wet suit in the cupboard and kept insisting that we go swimming in the sea. He gave great demo's of how he would dive into the water

When the bell went I got back to the classroom and there he was, on the mat ready to go.
