Bob's in demand...

Just before Christmas one of the local mums asked Bob whether he would give her two boys extra English lessons. She liked the fact that Bob was not yet fluent in German as her boys would not have a chance to speak German with him.

Needless to say, nothing happened until last week when Doris phoned to tell us that she'd forgotten but that her boys asked her to phone because they wanted Bob. In the meantime Bob had heard that her boys were a bit naughty so he was a bit worried if he could manage them.

Anyway the lesson dawned. Doris told us how excited the boys were and that there was an extra boy in the "class". It was so cute. I saw Bob go into the room where the three boys(7 years - 9 years old) were sitting on a bench with their little knees nervously bobbing up and down. As Bob was trying to be strict (just in case ), I heard him say In his Darth Vader voice :" Hello boys my name is Bob, what are yours?....

Just befor the lesson ended, "the class" moved outside and played soccer for a few minutes. Actually the boys outplayed Bob but he valiantly tried to score a goal.

Doris phoned us a few days later to say that Bob was a huge hit with the boys. All they could talk about was how Bob even played soccer with them!

And she told us that the next lesson would have 4 extra kids. The word has spread!!!

How cool is my husband...
