If anyone has a moment to translate my small amount of english script text (bellow) to Scottish Gaelic I would be forever grateful. Its for my school project and I cant afford to pay a professional translator. They're expensive! here it is:

1." Slow down! sometimes I don't know who the child is!"
2."Oh come now my sweet, we're just having a little fun."
3."Pa said we're going hunting Woohoo!!"
4."Excuse me? There's a storm coming in and we have church to tend to."
5."Eh? we canna survive on oats and chicken feed alone. A growing boy needs meat! Needless to say an expecting wife. Going to church won't put a hare on our table. Good fortune come to those who take it! Not to those who ask."

Finish.

Thanks Again!

mrhenderson,

I hope Im not too late to be of any help to you with your school project.

1. Slow down! sometimes I don't know who the child is!"
Gabh air do shocair, ha uaireannan ann aig nach eil fios agam c as leanabanach.


2. Oh come now my sweet, we're just having a little fun."
Och trobhad a nise mo leannan, chan eil sinn ach a cluich.


3. "Pa said we're going hunting Woohoo!!
Thubhairt mathair gu bheil sinn a dol a shealgaireachd.
(War cries such as Woohoo are optional and can be understood in any langauge)


4. Excuse me? There's a storm coming in and we have church to tend to."
Gabh mo leisgeul? Tha stoirm a dinadh a steach agus feumaidh sinn a bhidh faicillach air an eaglais.


5. "Eh? we canna survive on oats and chicken feed alone. A growing boy needs meat! Needless to say an expecting wife. Going to church won't put a hare on our table. Good fortune come to those who take it! Not to those who ask."
D? Chan uirean dhinn a bhi be air corc agus sol chearc na aonar. Feumaidh balach a fs feil! Mar sinn cuideachd le bean trom. Cha chur dol gan eaglais gerr air ar brd.Thig oighreachd mhath gu iadsan a chuiras lmh air! Chan ann gu iadsan a iarras.

Thats as close a translation of your statements as I can make them.
Good luck with your project anyway.
