Too Much Monday

Bear woke up in the middle of the night and then very early this morning with aches and pains.  It sounds like growing pains, could have more to do with racing around like a lunatic the day before, but I'm keeping an eye on it.  Unfortunately he woke me from an incredibly deep sleep both times, so I have felt not quite in sync all day. 

I feel for bear at the moment.  He was up at 7am doing the homework that he had had all holiday to do, and then he forgot to take his sports kit in with him.  But that was okay because there was no sports as they had two tests.  From general gossip going around, bear is not the only one who is getting rattled by the atmosphere in school.  I think that it is very hard on the kids.

Bear did have one moment of joy, however.  While he was in assembly, one of the teachers said Istanbul was the only city that is on two continents and that it is the capital of Turkey.  Bear said he thought it would be rude to shout anything out, but did point out to those around him that while Istanbul was on two continents (Europe and Asia), it was not the capital of Turkey.  The capital of Turkey was Ankara.  I really feel for his High School teachers.
