Young Winston Churchill!

Last night while we were watching a movie, Seán turned around and said to us, in his best British accent... 'We will fight them on the beaches, we will fight them in the air, we will fight them in the streets, we well NEVER surrender!'
He was trying to repeat the speech that Winston Churchill, (the British Prime Minister) said during WWII. Niall and I exchanged looks and really enjoyed it realising this was one of those precious moments that we can look back on where our 9-year-old quoted Winston...

This morning when I told a neighbour this latest story she laughed and said that at least Seán had quoted Winston Churchill, her son Sean would probably quote Will Smith!

It was funny!

As I type, Seán is outside in the hot May sun playing boy shooting games with his pals... (don't know what else to call them!) They are using two clothes-horses, two large umbrellas, towels, various toys and have also up-turned the garden table!!!
