Here is Iain helping with dinner. He's wearing his paper apron and paper chef's hat which he made at school, and he's missing three, soon to be four teeth!
Iain has almost finished a half a year of schooling, and to be honest it's been a bumpy journey. He is excelling with his school work, because to date he is yet to learn anything that he didn't already know before starting school. Because of this, and the fact that he is bored, his behaviour has not been fantastic. We've been working with the the teachers on it, but I'm not sure if I see it drastically improving. While there are provisions made for students who are struggling to learn, academically advanced students are expected to work at the same rate as the rest of the class. I think if he were in a school elsewhere we wouldn't be having such a problem, but unfortunately we don't have any other options.
Apart from school, Iain is enjoying Rugby, and like his Lego and Meccano at the moment. We have bought him a digital camera for Christmas which I think he will love, and will mean he (hopefully) stops stealing mine!
