We went to collect J's passport from the Moroccan consulate yesterday (except that it hasn't arrived from Morocco yet... I wonder if we will make it to Morocco this summer?) and I took the opportunity to have a little holiday - we stayed the night in a hotel and then today, blue skies and brilliant sunshine, we went to a big swimming lake near there. J hooked up with a little boy, who must have been 6, and they played together for a couple of hours. I was nearby so saw/heard everything and J played so beautifully - sharing everything, co-operative, good-humoured, within bounds - that it made me a little sad that things don't always go so well at school or in other situations. And things aren't going to be great for him next year at school, where he now has no other boys his age and where the boy who has been rather bullying and nasty towards him (but of late it's got better) is going to be the oldest and "ring leader" boy... what can you do? I can't sort it all out for him.
