The 2 biggest dilemmas I was facing personally when deciding to relocate to our country farm was changing Kasey's school and leaving my adult daughter. Kasey loves school, and I have been so worried that she would be overwhelmed by the whole process of changing school and find things really difficult. Kasey can be "clingy" at times, and I was not looking forward to the process of dropping her to her first day at her new school, fearing a tears session. School was cancelled here last week due to the floods, so her first day was yesterday. I have been as upbeat as I can about the whole process for her, and yesterday she was so excited about starting. Upon arriving at school we were shocked at how unchaotic the traffic was. The first day at her last school, in fact the first couple of months is pretty chaotic and there is usually traffic everywhere. But yesterday, we easily found a park, and casually wandered through the gates and quickly found her class room. This is the first time she has had a male teacher, he was very organised and directed Kasey to her desk for her to unpack her books along with the other students who were there as well. I said to Kasey, do you want me to leave you to get on with things, and she looked up at me with a HUGE grin and said Yes Please! and with that she waved goodbye. I met her in the afternoon at the gate, and she came running out again with a huge grin, and told me she LOVED her day, loved the school and that it is MUCH better than her last school, the playground is better, less kids is better, and she wished she had started last year! Phew....all that worry for nothing.
