I don’t know if you can remember your first day at school. I can, at least I think I can (it was 37 years ago so might be a bit hazy). I remember it was a really sunny day, my Granny Heron, my dad and I suspect my Mom (but funny the picture in my memory is of my dad and Granny Heron sitting on a small wall in the sunshine, laughing outside the prefabs!)
We were invited into the classroom, it was next to the nursery where I had just graduated from at the start of the summer. I got a large piece of computer paper, a red, blue and green crayon and went to town, scribbling. I thought it was a masterpiece.
Anyway, this is not the purpose of my post, I’m just setting up to explain how your memory captures things and even as an adult, I look back in that day with extremely fond memories. Wish I could chat to them about it 😢
We were ready early and the boys were starting to get tetchy so we went to the park. They had fun while my heart was in my throat. More cause I was worried that they were going to fall off rather than the impending starting school.
He was happy to be left and came out of the door with a big grin and we went to the park. He wants to go back tomorrow, so that’s a good sign.
Were you ok on your children’s first day at school?
