Well, they’ve had their first day at their new school.
This morning could have gone badly awry. It involved: –
- shirts with buttons
- ties – which in Ben’s case was not on a bit of elastic
- itchy jumpers
- plastic bags instead of PE bags.
But they got dressed without a word of protest, and disappeared into their classrooms with no more than a hint of panic flitting across their eyes.
And now I hear from Mike that Hannah said of her day –
“I had butterflies at first, but then the butterflies started smiling.”
