Little Sports Stars

The boys' school has been celebrating 'Health Week' all this week.

They have had lots and lots of chances to try out different sports; gone for Ranger led canal walks; Calum's class climbed one of the hills in Edinburgh; David's class went on a 'Teddy Bear's Picnic' to the Botanic gardens; James' class did a mountain biking obstacle course; they learnt a bit more about healthy eating; and the week ended with them being allowed to dress up in sporty clothes today for a wee parade around the playground.

James was desperate to go as Andy Murray. He loves the fact that his dad is the 'real' Andy Murray. His middle name is Andrew too so he is kind of an Andy Murray too.

Calum was wearing his new football strip for Inverness Caledonian Thistle, the team he has decided to follow.

And David has decided to follow mummy's family and support Rangers. He wore his new strip too.

Just to continue with the healthy eating, when we came home at lunchtime (half-days on Friday's  - love them!) we made up a batch of lilac cupcakes.

We found the cute little elephant toppers this week in the supermarket.

Now that's my kind of healthy eating!


  1. I do like the boys' choices of football teams. Of course, I'm a blue, through and through, but after Super-Caley's achievements last week, Terry Butcher's team is becoming a real favourite here too!
    (And yes, your idea of healthy eating is definitely mine too:)

  2. Sounds like fun. We never had such fun activities when I was in school..

    Love your work in progress. I hope you show them to us when they are finished.

  3. Haha, 'Andy Murray' does cause confusion here. When Alan saw 'Andy Murray' on the bus - I thought it was the tennis player lol!!
    Love Dawn x


I love reading everyone's comments, so thank-you for taking the time to leave them! I try and respond to them here too, so do check back later on.
