Arlo Margaret......

...... our newest darling Grandchild was born on Wednesday 16 June - right on her due date, and according to her very proud parents, Tanya and Geoff, only 4% of babies do that!
One-eyed parental bias aside, I understand she is perfect and beautiful, and already likes watching the soccer in the early hours of the morning and has the requisite negative views of the referee. Don't they say "Out of the mouths of babes...."?
Tomorrow I will be winging my way to Townsville to meet and get to know this latest treasure and spend a week with Tanya and Geoff, and also some lovely 'Grandmothers-together-time' with Geoff's Mum.
Do you think the camera will get a workout? I hope so!

Oh my goodness ... it is a small world.

The name of your post drew me in straight away. The APRE who was at my school for 2 years and still visits to do supply teaching this year, has just had a baby daughter named Arlo. So I thought I'd pop in to check out your post, thinking it was such a coincidence.

It seems they're one and the same person. Well congratulations Alice ... Geoff sent us a photo at school during our staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon. She is just beautiful. I'll be looking forward to seeing many more photos Grandma!
