Busy, nervous and excited

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.


  1. Glad to hear that it's going well so far. Keep us posted.

  2. I am really glad to hear things are going well with school. That is great she likes it. Sounds like she is trying really hard to remember her way which is awesome.

  3. Thank you both. Yes, she is working hard. So far she decided, that she is ready to travel home on her own next week. It is a great step for her and I am very, very happy it is her own decision, not my suggestion.

  4. I hope you don't mind but I am passing an award on to you. Give me some time to get it posted.

  5. It is hard to think of our children as growing up...yet wonderful at the same time. Glad to hear she is enjoying school and that you are getting over your school jitters. ;)

    Cheers, Jenn.

  6. Thank you stacie and Jenn. I am definately getting over the jitters :-)
