Ewan starts Y3 and Lachlan starts pre-school on 30th.

My sole remaining job is to take up Ewan's trousers. The age 7s would be a perfect fit but he'd grow out of them by Christmas so I've bought him age 8 which are a bit on the big side but will be ok once hemmed up.

New lunch bags and boxes acquired
School shoes bought
Uniform sorted

Have I forgotten something?
