Back to school

Off to High School! Today was Caitlin's first day of Year 7, nothing like 40 degree heat* to start things off with a kind of molten whimper. The Principal and the Year Advisor both devoted part of their welcoming addresses to reminding the kids to drink lots of water and not run around in the sun during recess and lunch, I don't think they'd have needed much reminding - it was a stinker of a day.

Caitlin's first day at High School

My mum came over in the morning to pick up some stuff I'd printed out for her and to see the kids off to their first day back at school. Consequently most of the photos I have are of the kids looking at Mum's camera instead of mine.

Tom seems fairly cheerful about going back to school despite being convinced that Year 4 is going to be horrible. Someone seems to have told him that he might have to do some actual work this year.

Two down, one to go - David starts Year 8 tomorrow.

*For my USian readers: 40°C = 104 Fahrenheit (aren't I kind to save you having to go do the conversion yourself?)

I miss my kids in uniform...:( They have got to wear any type of clothing to school, which really is a pain for the parents. Your kids look smart in theirs...:)

As I was reading this I was thinking you weren't in the US. And 40 degrees sure had me confused. Now I get it. That's hot!

We are having another snowstorm here again with the temps around 10 degrees, F that is.

Have a great day and Happy Anniversary.
