The new year got incredibly busy for Jamie very quickly with a few extra activities in his schedule from school. Jamie has his SATS in May of this year so school are working very hard with many pupils to help them improve and get the results they should be achieving, which resulted in Jamie being very busy for a lot of the week.
He had also been lucky enough to be selected to attend a programme that was being run at the MKDons Stadium in their education centre, so Mondays he didn't get home until 6pm but was full of stories of the ground, what goes on there and who he had met. Tuesday was Able Writers group and Wednesday Maths group so he wasn't getting home until after 4.30pm on those days too.
Wednesdays was a quick turn around as we had to be back at school for 5pm for Karate, then another quick change and Scouts at 6.30pm - a very busy evening.
Thursday is a trip to his Guitar Ensemble and Friday is our library evening - so it is a very busy week indeed. Saturday morning music and drama and rugby on Sundays but it keeps him busy, his brain occupied and his body active. I always make sure I have a book or magazine in the car to keep my brain occupied whilst I'm waiting for him!!
So in the midst of all of this trying to get his hair cut was a challenge, especially as he had designs on growing it long - I don't think so! He was allowed to keep it long and moptopesque over Christmas but as soon as we were back into our routine he was off to the hairdressers for a neat boys cut and he looked much better for it too.
