...because I got half way through a run down of our trip to Paris (yes back in April), got bored and gave up. I will try and finish it this week.
But at the request of my much missed Sister-In-Law and Mum and Dad Mitchell, I am giving a little update with some pictures of the kids.
Summer has apparently arrived in sometimes sunny Scotland. Although the weather hasn't been too warm so far, I estimate that it's been a lot drier than last year.
Iain is now on holidays from Nursery, and starts school on August 19th, and yes, I intend on bawling my eyes out when the big day arrives. He is looking forward to it, and is very proud of his school uniform, bag, and lunch box.
Gussy is now doing a second day at daycare in the hope it will bring is (very) slow speech on a bit. I'm contemplating trying to toilet train him either in the end of August or start of September, but I am not holding much hope he'll catch on very quickly. Not only will his speech hinder him, but he is steadfast in refusing to do things like that when he doesn't want to.
Iain is doing swimming lessons on Wednesdays, and in August he will also start his first year of Rugby. He has proven himself not to be either very interested or skilled at soccer this year, so Rugby seems much more his thing. I'm sure Craig will be pleased to not have to constantly remind him to not pick up the soccer ball, and that tackling is not allowed. Unlike his brother, Angus seems to show a lot of skill with his feet.
On Saturday we all drove to Glamis castle to play in the park, and wander the grounds.Here are some pictures of the day. If you click on the smaller landscape photos you should get a bigger view.
