Part daughter part Brownies

Thanks so much to everyone who posted helpful tips to help my daughter adjust to secondary school, we're still a long way off happy with her but there's signs that she's beginning to adjust, the odd smile, the first refusal of a lift so she can walk home with some girls. There's still tears, and feeling ill through nerves, but we can see the light even if she doesn't and your comments and emails have really helped us.

Brownies went back last night, we had a full house of 24 as ever but even more shocking - every girl paid up their subs (dues for non-Brits) for the term! No chasing subs this term! Yaaaaay!
We had a meeting about Rosh Hashanah (yes a little late but we missed our meeting last week as the school needed the hall) and sorted all the consent forms for the events this term: a visit to a stables and a vet plus the 20:10, 20/10, 2010 end of the centenary year celebrations.

So back to normal for Brownies and finding a new normality for my daughter - September is all about getting into the routine, right?

Glad to hear things are getting a bit better for your girl!

It's hard to believe that you're jumping back into Brownies again. Here, the troops don't start back for another two weeks or so.

Glad things are looking up a bit. It's a slow process, but I'm sure she'll get there in the end.

A vet visit sounds fun. I, also, am going for a vet visit soon, but as it's to get Max's vaccinations, it probably won't be as much fun as the Brownies' visit. At least for Max, it won't. ;-)

:0) right. Things are starting to look like there might be light at the end of the (very long) tunnel here too. Looking forward to the 20th Oct :0)
