These days Fergus alternates between being decidedly a “big kid” and “just a little kid”. Mostly he prefers to be seen as big, but he also seems to feed off the attention that he feels is only afforded the smallest, as in “Mommy, I’m still your little kid right?”
Sometimes, such as when fires are being lit or alcohol consumed, he’s even an “adult”.
And this year, for the first time, Fergus has decided to participate in our summer soccer outings that we organize. Summer soccer, Victoria homeschooling style, means kids of all ages, no whistles, unlimited breaks and, if it should strike your fancy (which it often does for some), lying down on the pitch and picking clover with your best buddy by your side. As well, if you so choose, you can have a ball to your self during scrimmages - as demonstrated here by Fergus as he gleefully pots a goal with his ball while the others, foolishly, fight over the other one!
