A huge "well done" to everyone
You're all amazing and I hope you plan to give yourselves
some sort of treat or reward for living through this
For the first-timers, I don't think anyone could have prepared you for how stressful, challenging and emotional the voyage could be. You're very special parents of exceptional children, who have gone above and beyond what can be expected of 10 and newbie 11 year olds.
As for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th timers: I admire you all. It takes immense inner strength and immeasurable dedication to your children, to continue to guide each one through the 11+ journey, knowing how stressful it is.
talea51 - Don't worry about doing it again with DD2 - you'll be fabulous - think of all the knowledge and experience you've gained
I had an 8+ year gap between my DD's and the lessons learned were invaluable. Huge, huge luck for 4 days time
