Hmm, some good bits to report, and some not so good! Rachel had a great birthday last week: we had a nice meal at the Blue Zone in Dingle, before she went off for a horse ride in the evening. Unfortunately this resulted in a broken thumb when she had a heavy landing after a HEE-UGE jump. Even more unfortunately she has a cast from her thumb almost all the way to her elbow for the next four weeks, so cannot drive. Mr. Smith will be assuming taxi driving duties....
She did manage to get out for dinner at Laura's, with Suzanne, and then had a lovely day at the spa at the Aghadoe Heights Hotel in Killarney, being spoilt rotten, with Corinne, Laura, and Carina. The girls all highly recommend this!

September is upon us, and Caitlin has now spent three days at primary school in Aughacasla! It's still difficult to find out exactly what she's been up to, but she seems to be enjoying it. I guess that we'll have the same trouble getting to know what's going on for the next few years...She did have to take all her books in on the first day: her school bag was so full we thought she'd topple over. She was, however, much more excited by the fact she lost her first baby tooth, no fuss or bother, and was fascinated with how the Tooth Fairy had sneaked into her room and taken the tooth away. Many questions were asked.
