Hi all. Hope you had a fantastic summer holiday and your little ones are ready for starting their new school. I can't believe how fast the time has flown. I dropped my young man off at the bus stop this morning for his first day at KEGS. He was as cool as a cucumber, but I had butterflies enough for both of us. Being just Y7 and Y12 in school today, he was the only one at the bus stop near us and I was beginning to panic that (a) we had the wrong bus stop(!) and (b) he wouldn't know anyone on the bus and I would be even more nervous as I waived him off. Thankfully, the bus arrived, the bus driver told me off for embarrassing him by giving him a kiss before he got on the bus (made me feel better anyway) and it was an enormous relief to see he'd spotted someone he knew. Phew!!
Now just got to wait to see if he can remember which bus stop he needs to get off at on the way home! Of course, I'll be there to flag the bus down - just in case. I know, it's sad, but once today is over, I'll feel much better.
Best of luck to everyone for their first day and in the future. Thinking of you all.
