I'm going to back track into August to list all of the things that we've been up to in the last month.
On the 15th of August, Iain started Primary School. His teachers are Mrs Herd and Mrs Suiter and he is settling in well considering very few of his nursery friends are in his class. Iain already claims to be a little bored during clas which is not surprising given that he can read and write and as a class so far they have learned seven letters in total. He is enjoying taking his packed lunch, and likes to choose what goes in his lunch box each day.
The first weekend after starting school, Iain also began his first season of Rugby. Stuart did a coaching course and is helping to coach the little ones as well. Iain is pleased as punch to wear his Rugby clothes, and his new footlball boots, which are just like his Daddy's. Iain is enjoying it so far, and the game seems to be mich better suited to him as opposed to Soccer where at Mini Kickers he kept takling players and pickign up the ball and running with it.
This weekend just gone, Iain played his first 'match' at Brechin and very loudly exclaimed "I won" when he crossed the line for his first try. However he was less than impressed with the head high tackle and facial massage he received from one of his own team mates.
Our other big family news is that Stuart and I were silly enough to think that a third child would be a good idea. So, ready or not, we are expecting a third addition to the family in mid March next year. We had a dating scan a couple of weeks ago, showing everything to be fine and on track. So far, this pregnancy seems to be very much like Angus' was, where I was no so bad in the beginning but it looks like I'll be having a morning vomit for many weeks to come.
On Saturday night we were lucky enough to ahve our friends from Australia Doug and Janelle, and their children Jake and Charlie stay with us for a night while they are visiting Doug's family in Scotland. It was nice to see them again, and the kids had a great time running amock.
Having them stay meant I got a head start on cleaning out the third bedroom for my cousin Shannon's visit this week. She's arriving tonight on the late train.
That's it for now.
