Megan and School Admissions

As much as I try to ignore it, the reality is that my not even 4 year old starts school this September and I’m not sure how I feel about that.
Megan April 16 .jpgSince loosing Poppy Megs has kind of been my baby still, she snuggles, strokes my hair, gives me kisses and is gentle and kind. On other days she is a feisty almost 4 year old with a whole lot of cheek, independence and divaesque about her. We spend our days drifting along; baking, making, colouring, out on adventures and watching Disney movies.
The closer September gets I find myself often wondering what she might be like at school , how she will take it and how being so young in the year will affect her…I most definitely think she has the potential to be Miss Bossy!

I watched my emails like a hawk waiting for the news and went crazy to find out her got our 1st choice. With Megan however, her application was done the day before the deadline and just on Saturday I googled the date for admissions release in our area (It was Monday this week).

Perhaps it is because Ethan is already in school and we have found it a comfortable transition and have naturally assumed Megsie would just follow him there. Or perhaps I have been feeling a little anxious that her time at home full time is almost up and I will miss having her around to snuggle and explore life with. I cannot believe she will be starting school full time, with her little uniform and book bag in just 5 months!
WP_20160417_14_02_27_ProThe email was there in my inbox this morning and I am please to say that she got our 1st choice – YAHHHHOOOOOOOO! The little beaut will be in Reception at Ethan’s current school, next door to him and sat in front of his class in assembly! When we broke the news she turned to him and said “yay we going to school together”! I am so happy for the little buddies to be there together, to know the school, the teachers and the flow of things. Whilst loosing Megsie full-time at home, I know she will enjoy it too…that’s if we don’t end up moving if Mr Smith gets a job elsewhere!

Run Jump Scrap!

    Congratulations lovely, it’s such a worry the whole school thingy and although she has her big brother there you do always hear the odd horror stories of siblings not getting in the same school!!
    My youngest starts next September and I’m dreading it already!! Xxx

      Thank you. I know its all a little scary isn’t it, even having gone through it I still feel those nerves with her. x

    I’m so glad she got in at your first choice, even though you know you should be okay because Ethan is in there you can’t help but feel nervous! She’s such a little beauty Mary, I bet she can’t wait to get started but you know you can make the most of the summer before it all begins xx

    This was us this time last year, and BB wasn’t even four either. She turned four three weeks before she started school but was fine and has taken it all in her stride, turning into quite a Queen Bee! So pleased you got your first choice #bestandworst

    Congratulations! Eva also got her first choice but I am so emotional about it!! Megan is absolutely gorgeous, and she looks like such a character (must be the name!), I’m sure she will be fine. I have no idea how my youngest two will cope without their big sister, she is the mastermind behind all of their devious little plans! #bestandworst

      Oh great.. congrats to you too but yes so emotional having them fly the nest lol well for 6hrs a day! It will be so interesting to see how the dynamic at home changes with her not there conspiring haah, good luck x

        I wasn’t worried, the school is on our doorstep! It’s quite nice too as its the same school that I went to, feels “right” if that makes sense. You will have your squidgy little new born here by the time Megan starts, exciting times! xx

    We went through the same thing last year but we didn’t get our first choice however my daughter really does enjoy school and has made some lovely friends. Glad you got the email you wanted though and they will be in school together 🙂 #bestandworst

      Oh sorry to hear that, but I am so glad things have still worked out and she has settled in and has some good friends…what a relief! x

    Congratulations on getting your first school choice! It must be comforting to know that your little ones will have each other for company and support. My little miss is 4 in Sept and so she has another whole year, but a lot of her friends are just a few weeks older than her and start this year? They just seem so tiny! Hope you enjoy your summer together and good luck for the big day. I’m sure she’ll love it.

    • April 20, 2016 / 7:38 pm

      They do seem so tiny – YES! The way the school years work out are so odd as there is such a big gap sometimes, but I am hoping despite being a little one, her personality will see her through. x

    Congratulations on getting your first choice of school. Even though it was likely she would as she had a sibling already there, you always worry just in case there’s a mistake and they end up at a school at the other end of town. Good luck to all of you as you navigate this next stage of childhood. (Beautiful photos! She looks such fun)

    • April 20, 2016 / 7:40 pm

      Thank you , she is a lot of fun! I said that to my husband, “can you imagine if we had to get them at different schools for the same time..nightmare” haha I dread to think! x

  8. April 24, 2016 / 9:29 am

    Ah I’m so pleased you got your first choice – can you imagine having to do two drop offs if she hadn’t got into the same school? Nightmare! I’m waiting to hear if Thea got into preschool (but I’m fairly confident she has as Ava went there) and then this time next year we’ll know if she got into the same school – not really looking forward to that to be honest! Your pictures are gorgeous, she is so beautiful xx #BestAndWorst

    Yay! That’s fab news, you must be pleased 🙂 We got our 1st choice of school too thankfully! Bet it will be strange having 2 at school. Thanks for linking up #bestandworst
