The last two days have been so busy I haven’t even had time to tweet ! Sid was the first in the house to head back to school on Thursday . On Wednesday we had a great day before he went back but Wednesday night he was still telling me he was too shy to go to school and he didn’t want to go .
I was hoping that over the summer he might have grown out of the whole not wanting to go to school but it was looking like he hadn’t . So Thursday morning we got up early , got dressed , let him pick his lunch , pretend to be excited he was going back and then off we headed to school . When we got there of course I had to go to the door with him , now he is in senior infants this year so I thought I might get away with going to the gate . Then it all changed , when it was time to go in I got a kiss and a hug and goodbye and that was it ! No fuss , no wanting me to go into his class just straight in on the first day back .
When I went back to collect him he came running out and told me he had the best day ever in school and he was the same yesterday . Now that he is the big boy in the class he seems much more content we will just have to keep our fingers crossed it stays this way all year 🙂
I am back to school on Monday to a new class of kids and I am in a way looking forward to it . Liam is back to school the same day he is going into Leaving cert this year another big year in the house and Robert is back to college in a weeks time , heading into his third year and the year he has to leave us for six months and head to somewhere like New Zealand . So a lot going on in this house again this year ! .
Anyone in your house starting school / college ? Heading away ? Or doing exams ? Leave a comment and let me know .
