Snowy and I took our lunch round to the oval today, to get a bit of sunshine and to have a change of scenery. Saturday afternoon soccer was in full swing.
Now, I have recently commented on someone else's blog that it is a good idea to confine your comments to what works for your own family and not run around the net making uniformed comments about others, be they homeschoolers, schoolers, religious, atheist....or soccer people.
So in that spirit, I'd like to say that:
1. In our family, it's considered rude to take one's vuvuzela to a soccer match and toot on the stupid thing every three minutes.
2. In our family, it's considered rude to shout at your children whilst they are trying to concentrate on a task. It's also considered rude to put one's head in hands when child fails to respond to shouting.
3. In our family, we like to watch our children take part in an activity, rather than film it to watch later.
4. In our family, it's considered rude to leave your filthy Fanta cans and chip packets at the oval for the council workers to clean up on Monday.
But just to show you we're not complete killjoys, in our family it is absolutely appropriate to cheer wildly when a child scores a goal!
