Enjoying school

After the back to school tears, from Lily last week. I just wanted to do an update, and tell you all. That Lily has been enjoying school. After a few tears on Monday, she has happily gone to school the rest of the week. And most importantly, she has come out from school every day with a smile on her face. Fingers crossed this continues, and she doesn’t go back to dreading going to school.

I think that being back and seeing her friends again, has made her happy. And that is over riding the worries about the school work. The “bubbles” that they are in is also making the school feel less busy, which is also definitely helping g Lily. So far it’s all smiles, and lets hope it stays that way.

Enjoying school

How long will they stay at school?

The thing that’s on my mind, with Lily enjoying school. Is how long will they stay at school? There’s already news of possible Covid cases in the area, though not at Lily’s school. I’m expecting it will only be a matter of time before the schools close again. If that does happen, it will be even more difficult than the first time.

Jack is really happy at school, and would be allowed to stay in school if the schools close again. Which would leave the decision of whether he goes in our hands, which is a lot of pressure.

With Lily I will be back to worrying is she would settle going back again. It’s been a confusing time for young children, and I worry it’s not going to get any easier. I guess we will just have to see how things go, and wait for any announcements. At least for now both Jack and Lily are enjoying school, and hopefully that continues. As always, thanks for reading.

    I’m glad they’ve settled back.

    How long will they stay there? In our case, 4 days before a temperature, 2 days off, a COVID test, negative result and back again on Thursday. So much fun….

      Lily had a cold a week before school started, and the school is full of them already.

    So far so good at the girls school *touch wood*

    The government has said schools closing again will be kept for a last measure or something.

    Glad they’ve both settled back at school ok Adam. All the kids have adjusted really well with all the new changes in school.

      Yeah it’ll be a last measure, they don’t want to have to pay any more out for people being off.

    I don’t envy parents having to deal with this situation, especially if the decision was left in my hands for one but not both of my children

      Yeah it’s really really awkward to know what to do.

      It really is a relief, I was stressing so much over the return to school.

    I’m glad to hear your children are settling back into the school routine. I share your worries about another school closure and agree it would be harder next time. My bonus son has an ASD diagnosis. His bio mom is refusing to send him and his sister back to school despite professional recommendations. It’s a trying time for everyone, especially families with special learning requirements or co-parenting difficulties.

      Yeah it’s difficult and complicated enough for us, throw in that extra element you have, and I can’t even imagine the stress.

    It is so awesome that Lily and Jack are both loving school and settling in so well with the new changes, so I hope things continue to go well for you and yours! Sometimes a little normal structure is needed. 🙂

    I’m glad that she’s settled back in! It’s such an uncertain time. There’s a school in the council neighbouring mine that’s already had to shut after several staff members tested positive, it’s not looking great in general. I hope your area has better luck!
