Today was little sister's first day at an American school. And big sister's second day. You'd have thought they'd been going for years. E went off without even kissing me. I was a bit miffed, actually. And L gave me a sweet kiss and then that was it. Bye Mama. I'm at school. See you later. L has always taken longer to settle so I was expecting rather more drama.
So that was it, as they headed off to their much larger, diverse, multi-lingual, urban school. It couldn't be more different than their primary school in Wales but they seem to have adjusted very quickly. E came out telling me about her first Spanish lesson and L said she'd spent the morning talking about trees which apparently was boring!
Huge relief then. But I think it may take a little longer for me to settle down watching them going off to school.
