Today we had kids playing sport in three different directions, east, west and north. I went east with Jack for a soccer game. Ange took Henry to Albany and James hitched a lift with one of his friends to a rugby game out west. The little bugger had a real blinder and was awarded player of the day. He scored two tries in a convincing team win of 15 tries to 1. Both mum and dad disappointed we missed his first rugby try. Go Takapuna.

Northcote Primary’s annual crazy hair disco tonight… school fund raiser. Thanks to our f.stupid government we will need lot more of these to cover the funding shortfall thanks to the new ‘better teachers – bigger classes’ policy. Anyway I digress. Crazy Hair Disco – one of the highlights of the school calendar according to our boys. They are always keen to put lots of effort in – (translation = high expectations on dad). Last year we went all out on Henry’s hair so this year I was keen to make more of an effort with James. Success, he won the prize for the middle school with his monster-thing addams family costume. James very happy!

Henry had a good game in the backs.. still not sure what position he should play - he is still figuring it out for himself. His team had a convincing victory against Glenfield and Henry had a couple of good plays with the ball, including this short run below where he was stopped and ‘spear tackled’ by a girl in the other team.
