They are off to London on the tube and then a boat trip. Feel so nervous.

Head of unit is going and has promised to hold dd's hand the whole day. It just feels too much.

Funnily enough on Saturday the intergrated playscheme that she goes to on a Saturday are taking dd and ds to the farm and I am not worried at all.

I could go on the trip but I know dd will play up for me.

If you trust the school then don;t worry. School take ds1 out everywhere (playground and stately home yesterday, mcdonald's for a party today- for example) and I know they understand exactly what he is like. They even pair the fastest runner with him As long as people understand the level of supervision a child requires I think you're OK, they're only dangerous if they don't get that.

what bit are you scared of? the school taking her? or where they are going? my lot have been on lots of trips and i often go to help out, are you worried about supervision?

Can you suggest that they all wear the same colour t-shirt, something bright? Also its a good idea to use those ID wristbands from www.gltc.co.uk (I HATE it when they stick labels on them!). The ID wristbands can be put through a loop on clothes for any child who won't tolerate anything round the wrist (my DS!). You could also see if they want volunteers to go along, although prob better to let them get on with it.

jj - lol @ fastest runner.

oj - I want to make sure she is on a 1 to 1. The thing is I know I have to let her go as hopefully someday she will lead some kind of independant life.

davros - thanks for link. probably be too late to order them for Friday though.

I think it is the fact that it's "London" that I am scared.

I just always think the worst but on the other hand if I do go dd will play up and be stressed and so will I.

I just have to let go don't I?
