The Wee Scottish Lad

Last Sunday we were invited to join some friends of ours at the Scottish Festival about 30 miles away from home. It was an amazing day. I have never seen so many splendid kilts outside of Scotland and this is one of the many endearing sights that we saw, a wee Scottish lad twirling to his heart's content.

O wad some power the giftie gie us, to see oursel's as others see us.

O Life! how pleasant is thy morning,
Young Fancy's rays the hills adorning!
Cold-pausing Caution's lesson scorning,
We frisk away,
Like schoolboys at th' expected warning,
To joy and play.

Scottish Proverb

Never let your feet run faster than your shoes.....

because he is still twirling.....

and twirling and twirling..........and what a joy it was to see.

A very beautiful photo of human interest. The little lad is just as happy as the music. He looks so cute in that kilt!

That really is endearing. I love the way kids are fearless and fun and full of smiles when they are happy, as this fellow obviously is.

Lovely shots and what a cute little boy having, it would appear, the time of his life!! Great pictorial moments for him to treasure as he grows.

I too am an expat. For the past two, nearly three years I have lived in Spain and so it is a joy to finally come across another expat. I am new to blogging so hope that you will find the time to drop in for a visit; I hope you'll find something you like!!

How precious. Just think, one day you may have a little twirling child at your house. Happy week-end.
