A first!

My little boy started school today. Am I still allowed to call him a little boy?

As you can see, drop-off went well. No tears!!

He settled easily and got stuck into the activities and making new friends ...

After the parents were 'shoo'd out of the classroom, we were greeted by the school's Parents and Friends Association equipped with a range of 'beverages' to calm any anxious or tearful grown-ups.

I felt relatively OK about the whole thing. It helps that Jake has already been in full-time kinder for a year so I'm used to the idea of someone else looking after him during the day.

Also, I'm excited (and only a little anxious) for him. It's a great new adventure and I think we have picked a wonderful school to meet his needs.

So, I'm OK. I hope he is OK too. Pick up in 2 hours!!!

Andi :-)
