Ripley fell asleep on the train because he is in training to be a salary man.🙍♂️Actually, his current path is to be a DJ because his dad bought him a synth. Before that it was to be a mixed media artist and before that it was to be a scientist because he wanted to invent a way to walk through walls.
I love this kid. He is so fun to go on adventures with even though sometimes he wants to stay home and play Minecraft or watch people play Minecraft on YT Kids. Once I get him out of the house it’s all good. He likes anything that’s cute and you can’t go 2 steps in Tokyo without dying of kawaii.
His heart is so full of compassion for animal welfare that he is suspicious of eating food even when we tell him we are at a vegan restaurant! I think he doesn’t trust Google Translate because he has seen how it translates English to French.
He’s doing much better at school now. He’s made some friends - all girls - and has had one play date. Apparently he has a girlfriend but he was told that by the girl that they were gf and bf, yet he doesn’t know what it means so it’s kind of funny.
His French is amazing but he’s only done a couple of hours of English since he started school so Sean and I have committed to homeschooling him on Wednesday afternoon which is his half day. One of his activities will be writing letters to friends so I’ll need to collect addresses.
We are trying to figure out where he can take martial arts still. Hopefully in our neighborhood. Kendo looks so fun. I mean, who doesn’t want to whack sticks?! I want to take it! He is loving riding his bike to and from the bus stop although he’s struggling with hills on the way home because he hasn’t quite got gear changing down yet.
In a few weeks he has his Autumn break and we are planning some fun things to do including forest bathing. So excited!
