Are you worried abour her? I'm sure she'll be fine.

My friends ds started today, and my cousins daughter starts tomorrow. They are both more nervous than the kids!

We have another 2 years before dd1 starts - I am dreading it! She is my baby - starts back at playgroup next week and I cant wait mind you!

Just being nosey, where abouts are you, seems very early in Aug for the term to start?

FlameBatfink · 15/08/2007 11:08

Where are people at School? DS2 doesn't start school untill the 13th September.

MrsScavo · 15/08/2007 11:13

Bummer... Iwas thinking of visiting friends in Edinburugh during the holidays.... now it will have to wait till half term. I'm sooo disorganised

dd started yesterday. (P1) Very reluctant yesterday, but happier today. Her big brother is a bit put out as they're in the same class (p1 - p4 composite).

she said "do i have to go tomorrow mummy?"

i said "yes darling, for the next 11 years at least"

her eyes were like dinner plates

DD1 starts pre-school tomorrow.

She won't be happy at having to wake up that early, she likes lie-ins and could sleep for Scotland.

prettybird · 15/08/2007 11:35

Glasgow schools don't go back until tomorrow. Ds3 will be going in to P3 - time flies!

prettybird · 16/08/2007 09:31

Took ds to school today. He's growing up!

He's said he wants to walk to school on his own on his 7th birthday (10 September). It's about a 10 minute walk. If he still wants to, we'll let him - only we will be following him to check up!

So if I could afford 2 houses I could live in England the first half of the year and Scotland the second half and the kids would only get 3.5 weeks' summer hols?!

gscrym · 16/08/2007 09:37

DS starts next week. He's dead excited about it and keeps checking his bag to make sure he has his pencil case.

expatinscotland · 16/08/2007 09:39

She's away! Sob!

She was all excited and couldn't wait to get dressed to go back.

prettybird · 16/08/2007 10:18

The wee sweetheart!

Fortyplus - depnds on when you were to move back to Scoltand. If it were literally the first 6 months in England and the second 6 months in Scotland, then when you moved back to Scoltand at the beginning of July, you'd find that the Scottish schools would have just started their holidays, so you'd still get 6 weeks.

DD2 starts on Mnday.

She says she doesn't want to go to P1.

Why I ask.

DD2 - I want to go back to nursery because we go up to P1.
(They were taken up to the class and to see the teacher every Friday)

Me - But next week you will be in P1 all the time and you like it and see all your friends.

DD2 - Yes but when we go up with nursery we go back to nursery again.

Ahhh. The logic of being 4.

Ds started today in Glasgow at the Gaelic school.
He was away for 4 hours and I have no idea what he was doing as he wont say , just that it was good and he hasnt got homework! It was really odd waving him off ont he bus with his sister!

Dd1 went into p3 today and dd2 starts
preschool a week today.

Those of you not in Scotland - remember we have been off since 29th June, hols are just at a different time!

harrisey · 17/08/2007 08:17

Are the new p1's still doing OK? Mine was up at 6.30 this morning he was so excited about going back again!

prettybird · 17/08/2007 08:48

It doesn't get any better Harrisey as you kow! "What did you do in school today? " "Nothing"

I think of you and your kids as I cycle past the school in the monrngs!
