This is it. My elder daughter is experiencing her last day at Primary School. And I am a blubbering wreck (again)!
We have certainly been on a roller coaster of emotions and experiences during the past seven years. Her school life has been hectic, traumatic, exciting, and educational in more ways than I thought. Looking back now, I remember when she was in Year 2, and she almost died of an ear infection that got into her jaw. I remember her fantastic performance as Killer Queen in the summer play when she was in Year 3. I remember the Nativities, the school Christmas fairs, the school summer fairs, concerts and events. Earlier this year we attended the AO Arena in Manchester to watch our children perform with Young Voices. That was an amazing night. There are so many memories from her time at Primary School that I cannot list them all here. But I will always remember our time.
And now I prepare for her to begin High School. She will use a public bus to get there and back. I am currently unable to drive following my own medical drama, but this is only temporary, and we are finding ways around it. My daughter has attended transition days at her new school and is already making friends. She has a friend already at the school, so we have had extra help when visiting which makes a big difference. We are excited for her to begin the next chapter in her life, and I will learn to give her more freedom. We have achieved something fantastic in these regular life experiences. Well done, parents and carers. We did it!

Awww congratulations to your daughter! I hope she had a great last day and I’m sure the teachers will be absolutely thrilled with their thoughtful gifts. It really does sound like a lot has happened in her young life already, I’m not surprised this is a pretty emotional time, but in a good way. It’s great she already has a friend for starting high school. That makes a difference I think.
Now for the best bit – Summer holidays! I used to love the prep in the holidays with buying new stationery. Looks like I never grew out of my love for stationery, pens, notebooks etc. I hope you get to spend some quality time together and have a fab couple of weeks before the emotional scholastic rollercoaster continues! xx
Thank you! Oh yes, we now need to buy her a new laptop along with stationery supplies and a bus pass. High school is looking expensive!
