First choice

I'm sure many many parents around the country have been feeling exactly the same as us. We have been waiting what seems like ages to receive an email telling us whether or not Aly has been accepted into her first choice primary school. Friday was the dreaded day and then it happened....Aly has been accepted!

As a lot of parents we felt relieved to finally get the good news. It also seems most of her friends have been accepted into their first choice schools as well so good news all round.

I feel for the parents of children who didn't get their first choice.

Now all the have to do is complete the forms, get the uniforms, meet the teachers, visit the school and the worst part prepare ourselves for that first day and leaving them at this new environment!
