It's been a busy several days.
Preparation to the new school year in the new
Shoes, uniform, accessories... shopping, planning
and my nervousness, Cirwen's excitement.
She started school on the 3rd of September, walked
proudly in her black school blazer, white shirt and
purple tie. God, she looked so grown up!
It's been a few days since the start. She is loving
her new school, all they do even the homework
given on their first day.
I am less and less nervous and stressed. Although
it's just the beginning and we have to get used to
travel by public bus.
After her induction days and these few recent trips,
we play the game on the bus. She has to tell me where
to get off or where we are, because I can't remember.
This way she learns to look for landmarks to navigate
her way. She now is confident on the way back, as
it is easy to spot remarkable building of the local pub.
However, she still has difficulty with the way to school.
Unfortunately, the bus stop is in the residential area,
where houses are pretty much all the same... She has to
remember which way and how many turns the bus does
before the stop. I hope it will be good few weeks, before
she gets the drift. Till then, I'm with her.
