First day at College

This was Rachel’s first day at college doing her Cache 2 course. As we hadn’t managed to rearrange Alexander’s nursery hours we had to send him to Nanny Susan’s. Aunty Marie helped look after him and he made a train – something he had already decided to do and worked out the night before.


Rachel really enjoyed the course. It is definitely the right decision.
