    I am 57 my eldest girl went to High School today.Iworried about her all day.She came home by herself for the first time.I sat looking out of the window while she came home after three.She walked down the street with the biggest smile. It had been a good day.

    Good on her!

    A friend of mine's eldest son, many years ago, when being asked what he thought about his very first day at infant school (or whatever it's called nowadays), said 'it was OK, but I don't think I need to go again!' :biggrin:

    Cool. It's good to know children enjoy school.

    I sure noticed the increased traffic today though :biggrin:

    Our eldest had his first day in his second year today (year 1-I still don't get it). He couldn't sleep last night and was like a shaken up pop bottle this morning with excitement.

    They must be doing something good these days. It was never like that for me.

    Granddaughter No1 cried at the schoolgates apparently. Her little sister went for a bike ride to cheer herself up. Nearly a mile! The back to school chocolate has been delivered. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

    Miss Hugo15 had here first day in reception class today. She looked so grown up in her little uniform. Can't believe she has started full time school - where did the last four and a half years go to??
