Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

El­iz­a­beth Stone said ‘Mak­ing the de­ci­sion to have a child is mo­men­tous. It is to de­cide for­ever to have your heart go walk­ing around out­side your body’. and this is the case for Robert and Cather­ine McAr­dle as they ex­pand their hearts to wel­come baby Jack Wil­liam into their fam­ily. Jack weighed in at 3.58 ki­los and was a pleas­ingly short de­liv­ery.

Rob and Cather­ine have a long his­tory, hav­ing met at Gal­ston Preschool and both at­tend­ing Gal­ston Pri­mary School. Years later they met again at the Gal­ston Club and to­gether with Rob’s daugh­ter, Amelia Rose they cre­ated their own fam­ily unit. Their first son, Corey James, now 20 months, was named in hon­our of Rob’s Grand­fa­ther Jim, who started the first McAr­dle Tree Ser­vices. Jack Wil­liam’s se­cond name is after Cather­ine’s fa­ther Bill Lea.

There is a Chi­nese proverb which says, “A child’s life is like a piece of pa­per on which ev­ery per­son leaves a mark” Al­ready Jack’s page is be­ing filled by the sup­port and ex­cite­ment of his par­ents, sib­lings, fam­ily and friends. Ev­ery­one is thrilled and de­lighted and now the fun be­gins.
