Gorgeous Girl has been asking to go to school since the middle of December last year. Now that we have a car she was finally able to start.
and wearing her hat.
I was very nervous about driving Gorgeous Girl to and from school every day. We did test drives on the Friday and Sunday before she started school so that I would know the way and the conditions of the road.
It takes about 35 minutes to get her to the school if the traffic is good and there are no new major potholes. The roads are constantly being repaired and new potholes being created when it rains (which is every day at the moment – wet season) so conditions vary daily. But it hasn’t been as hair raising as I thought. I think the traffic looks worse when you are a passenger…
Gorgeous Girl is loving her new school. She is in the transition pre-school and so is learning to write letters and numbers. She was very excited to go to school today, because on Fridays her class has Music, Sport and Swimming. She loves the water and has had her swimming togs and towel in the car since she heard about swimming classes on Monday.
And because this is a craft blog. Here is a picture of a bag I made for a good friend. It is handspun by me from a Nurturing Fibres batt.
