Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. we all want Rafa back, even the haters :angel:

Somehow, I didn't think that Federer was going to win it (or maybe that was just wishful thinking on my part ) but I didn't expect him to lose before the SF.

Did it have to be Berdych, though?

---

This morning, I heard a news item that parents and children can follow a course on "how to play outside".


I found an article about it.

Quote:
Wat kun je allemaal doen met een stok die je in het bos vindt? Waar vind je slakken of spinnen? In welke boom kun je goed klimmen? Veel kinderen hebben er geen flauw benul meer van
Translated:
Quote:
What can you do with a stick you find in the forest? Where can you find slugs and spiders? What sort of tree is good for climbing? A lot of children don't have a clue about these things any more.

Seriously, though? Learning how to play outside? You'd think that this would come naturally. If a kid runs around in a forest and picks up a stick; do you really think that this child won't figure out on his/her own what sort of things you can do with it? Since when do children need an instruction guide on how to play with a stick.

The article continues that many parents consider it to be "safer and easier to keep children inside. Their clothes don't get dirty that way."


I'm guessing it's more about the parents than the children. There's so much overprotection these days. When parents do take their kids to a forest, it's often to the protected play area.

Cowboys beat the NY Giants, or was it some warm up game?

Ah well who knows about Rafa.

LOL Hilde, we were playing outside all day and mom wasn't really worried, well she was working all day anyway. But the world has changed since that a lot.

I like Berdych a lot but doubt he'll win the USO.
Maybe Muzza will for the joy of Mikey but most probably Nole Godovic. So my condolences to Andreea.

Murray is going to win for sure. Will probably dedicate the title to Rafito even though Kim Sears will be expectantly waiting in the background.

Am certain I saw a long post from star earlier. Deleted?

Not that-the parenting one. I read it anyway.

Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. we all want Rafa back, even the haters :angel:

You know how I like to help out my sister with the kids when I can (and when she needs it). Well, today was such a situation. The twins have to be picked up from school before 5 o'clock and both parents had other places to be so they asked me to do it. I usually work past 5 but I was able to leave earlier today. The problem was that their school is in a part of Riga I never go to, and I had problems getting there. I had decided to walk the last part of the distance, and I had chosen a street that led nowhere and I had to walk back and take a different route. As a result I was 20 minutes late and the teacher had had to stay late because of that and the boys were tired and rather apathetic. I just hate it when I plan something and then I can't execute it well and I inconvenience other people as a result of that.
