Flower of Scotland

Today at Timaru Christian School they had a mufti day, everyone was encouraged to come dressed up as a Rugby World Cup supporter.
There was a sea of black and a fair amount of green and yellow (we have a lot of South Africans at school) and a few different supporters as well.
As soon as Samuel heard about today he was on the phone to Uncle Dave to ask if he could borrow his Scottish flag.
My youngest sister Sandra married a Scotsman, and she is the kiwi in the family, my other sister Heather and I are poms and we both married kiwis.
On Tuesday there was parcel in the post for Samuel, inside was the flag, face paint and beanie that he is been told to keep, he was so excited and today took a long time in arriving.
 This is Samuel and Halle.
 He had a great day, I don't think much work was achieved today.
 We have 2 weeks of school holidays now, we love the holidays.
Thanks Sandra and Dave for making Samuel's day so special.
Here's a treat for you.
Have a great weekend.

  1. Thank you so much for that Helen. I lived in Scotland for 20 years before coming to NZ so it brought back lovely memories.
