She has been busting to wear her uniform, and has given us several previews over the summer holidays so she was completely thrilled to finally put it on for real!
We got out her scooter and helmet and she scooted to school while I walked with Lucy in the pram. She has a few buddies from her kindergarten (pre-school) in class with her which made her feel a lot more relaxed when she arrived.
Here's a bit of nostalgia for you! I remember my first day of school well. My little brother was only 10 days old, Mum was not long out of hospital and my Nan was staying with us. We lived in Sydney then and I went to Cherrybrook Public School. I loved that maroon uniform - my Cabbage Patch Doll had a matching one!
I choked up a little bit when we arrived at the school gate but I pulled myself together. Anna was a bit quiet and possibly a little overwhelmed but she got into some drawing so I left her to it. Her teacher, Miss Arnold, is lovely and I can see Anna will adore her.
