The past year Harri has really started getting interested in the footy. He watches most of the games, and knows everything that is going on. He reads the newspaper all weekend to see what's going on in the footy and has a league ladder where he changes the teams around to match the ladder after every game.
He comes home from school dirty every day as he has been playing football all recess and lunch with the 'big kids' and Jalen often comes home upset as they have made comments that 'your brother is better at footy than you!' to him (which is actually true!).
As if it wasn't enough to play footy all day, he then spends hours upon hours in the hallway just kicking his little footy around to himself. All you hear all night and weekend long is him kicking the football into the door or wall (lucky it is a soft one!) as he practices his kicking and marking by himself. He is left handed, and therefore kicks it his left foot and gets really excited when he kicks well with his right, and comes and tells us about it.
This is typical Harri any free time he has - doing this over, and over and over again...until I tell him I've had enough of the banging :)
