Today we went to our local home education group's sports club. "What's unusual about that?" I hear you say... well 6 months ago my son (then aged 5) had surgery on both of his feet and was in casts for 3 weeks. I find that amazing and fully intend to update you all soon with a post just covering his journey...but today he played football.
He did not show any interest in playing football at all until he watched the world cup over this summer, and when we heard there maybe some free spaces at the sports club he jumped at the chance to try. Today was the free trial session to see how things went. Luckily, he loved playing and he suffered no pain in his feet. It was quite unusual for us to see him playing football as his previous sporting interests were more sedate like golf. We were more likely to find him to talking about dinosaurs, pokemon or falling asleep with a book.
He is definitely planning on going again and we are happy he has the chance to.
