Today's Advent Activity was the only one to have been greeted with fists-punched-in-the-air enthusiasm: Play A Game of Backyard Cricket.
It was also the only Advent Activity to have ended with both children in tears. A combination of starting too late in the day (Mister Fixit's illness required a chest x-ray which hijacked the afternoon; he's on antibiotics now and a follow up x-ray next week) and the fact that Climber is now so passionate about cricket that he was unable to cope when his visions of backyard excellence went ever-so-slightly pear-shaped. The upshot of which was that Cherub took a ball to the face that had been bowled in anger and the game ended very abruptly indeed.
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
