June

June was Euan's final month at Errol Primary School, so many of the activities centred around events for transition to Perth High School in August. Euan had two full days at Perth High, involving getting the bus, finding his way around classes and a timetable as well as sampling the school dinners. This all seemed to go well. Later in the month, both Mum and Euan attended a couple of evening sessions at the school. This first one in DET (Desgin, Engineering & Technology) involved making a wooden Post-It holder and the second was an art class. Both very enjoyable and a good opportunity to meet other pupils, parents and teachers. The end of year service at Errol church was very enjoyable, with all of the P7 pupils looking very smart in their ties (Euan had to borrow one from the school office!)
Outdoor activities this month included a walk in Glen Clova, Scout cycle camp and a bothy trip to Gelder Sheil, using the new bike trailers for the first time. Dad and Euan also went for a swim and play on the climbing wall in Dundee while Mum went out for lunch. The weather has also allowed some al fresco dining. Dad has been playing with the Primus stove and has produced, pitta breads, naan breads and meatballs so far!
We managed to fit in two agricultural shows in June - West Fife at the start of the month. Getting out of the car park through the thick mud was entertaining as was watching other drivers tackle this problem!! No such concerns at the Highland Show, which was a lovely day out. Euan was too busy making pork stir fry at the RHET building to meet Nicola Sturgeon in the other room. As usual, having food to eat made up for his disappointment!
We had an entertaining evening at the 4th Fife Scout Group 'curryoke' night, taking place to raise money for a new Scout Hall. We didn't sing but certainly enjoyed the curry.

The year so far.

Last year.
