Starting School {The Ordinary Moments}

It’s no secret that LP started school on Wednesday. Aged four and 2 weeks, LP looked tiny in her uniform but so grown up at the same time. She was excited all morning and could not wait to put that uniform on, get to school and see her new friends and teacher.

LP has made us so proud this week – seeing her carry her school bag, pick which meal she wants for lunch each morning when we get to school and then go into her classroom without so much as a backward glance. The three days she has spent at school – two half days and a full day on Friday – she has loved. She’s come out to us smiling at the end of the day and she talks non-stop about the things she’s has done, the children she has played with, lunch that she has eaten and everything else that she has done that day.

LP loves school. She loves the routine and she loves waving goodbye to us and seeing us again at the end of the day. LP is already very set in her new school life and although she is still small, and young, I know that she is ready for school. These last few days have shown me how grown up LP has become, how resilient and how adaptable she is. She isn’t phased by change or trying something new. She is a credit to us and I can’t wait to see what the rest of her first term brings.

LP – the school girl!

    You must be so very proud of her Donna, especially because she is so little. It sounds like she loves it and is going to do brilliantly! I can’t believe they are at school, least of all little LP at only just four years! x

    Ah, she looks so sweet in her uniform – as you say, small yet grown up at the same time. I’m glad she’s settling in so well. My Boo was like that, loved it from the first day, and now in Y1, same thing – phew! x

    Bless her lovely, what a confident little girl, you are so lucky. She looks so cute in her little uniform. Bless her. Sophia also has gone in so well apart from the third day she got a bit wobbly, but she has surprised me I am so glad she has been so confident as she can usually be very shy. She doesn’t have a full day next Monday so still a week left of half days. Bless them, they are so small still. It has been an experience. Glad LP is settling in so well xx

    New chapter begins.

    Aww, bless her sweet little face. It must be such a relief that she loves school already!

    Ahh I am so pleased that she is enjoying it so much. She will be amazing x

    Glad LP settled in well to school. She’s obviously a lot more chatty than is – he’s in week 3 (well, day 9) and so far he’s done ‘nothing’, doesn’t know, and can’t remember his buddy’s name (but can remember it’s a girl and that his friend’s buddy is called Robert). I despair of finding out anything, and it sounds like his best friend’s just the same!

    Funny how once that uniform goes on, they suddenly age about 3 years, isn’t it? She really does look so pleased with herself to be going off to school. How has her brother been without his big sister around? x

      He’s been asking to go and get her from school but generally as long as he’s busy the day goes quickly for him and he quite likes being able to play with whatever he likes and watch what he wants on TV! x
