1-2-3…testing…testing… Is this thing On?

Well, this is the great experiment in keeping our many friends and relatives up to date on what’s happening with the Magrath family. As you most likely know, we’ve “recently” moved to Balhannah, South Australia and it has been pretty difficult keeping everyone current on our lives and sharing in theirs.

If you don’t know who we are, let me introduce us:

  • Shane Magrath
  • Leanne Magrath
  • Liam Magrath – Born: 26th September 1996
  • Rohan Magrath – Born: 9th September 1999
  • Sonya Magrath – Born: 25th October 2003
