Hi. I was around in 98 -99 on the expecting club board. I recognise a few names. Haven't been on the boards for years.....really! I was tanyab1 if anyone recognises that name. I did used to lurk mainly. Really enjoyed doing the gift exchanges! Do you still do any of that? I keep up with one mum from back then and we still exchange Christmas gifts (although mine tend to arrive 3 or 4 months late)
Tara was born 1 Aug 99. So she's 6.5 now and in Grade 2. When I first posted we were in Norway. We're now finally back in South Africa so that Grade 2 is a S.African one. Don't know how it equates to you. She started school at 4 in the UK so has done Reception (kindergarten?) and Grade 1 already. I think she reads beautifully but I'm her mum, so of course I do :-) We've mucked up the system here having started her schooling in the UK, so whilst she's turning 7 this year, everyone else in her class is 8 or turning 8. So far so good. She's having a wonderful time and has lots of friends.
Hayley is 4.5. She's staying home with me this year and will start Grade 0 (approx = to UK reception) next January. We run on a Jan - Dec school year here.
I'm very much a SAHM - running children from various activities and catering to their and various friends needs. Hope to add a bit more "me stuff" to the schedule...next year. Been saying that for about 6 years now ;-)
Anyway - I'll lurk a bit and see if we sort of fit in.
