About a boy...

Well today's post is about developments in Ibrahim's little life. He has been a busy chap! Ibrahim is due to move to the Juniors in September but we just didn't feel that it was good enough and he wasn't being challenged. For example we like to do a bit of extra work with him but it is proving so hard its like going against the grain as at school there is not much effort!

After much deliberation we approached a great private school. He sat the entrance exam and got through. I was so proud of him. I'm sure lots of people don't agree with private schools but seeing as he isn't getting the education we want this is what we have opted for. The big downside is of course the back breaking fees! I almost keeled over at the price of the uniform which is nothing special! However he has made me proud and I'm so pleased that he will be going to a good school. It will mean another upheaval for the poor love seeing as he only changed schools a year ago however I hope it will be for the best and he already knows one of the boys in his new school!

Also....Ibrahim did the Taekwondo exam two weeks ago to move from a high white belt to a yellow and he passed...I was almost in tears I was so pleased, he was also made a member of the the tiger team -this is a group of kids who have tiger badges and are awarded these for discipline, behavior, dedication etc etc. I was so happy that he passed he grading, then he got his tiger badge andI was just a gushing high pitched squealing mad woman hehe. He is a very active and sometimes exhausting young man but the joy that he gives me is immeasurable, just the hugs I get as I come in the door..awwwww...bless hehehe. Here are a couple of pics of my love!

On the right is Ibrahim with Grand Master Yusuf Dildar and on the left is Ibrahim with Master Yusufs brother Master Usman Dildar. They are fantastic instructors and have such a great way with the kids. The kids.

Can you spot Ibrahim's tiger badge in his left hand! ..We even laminated his certificates..hehe..and of course he took everything in for show and tell.!!!! And bellow he demonstrates for us his fighting stance!

And if you are still with me thanks for putting up with a gushing mum!
