I am proud of her. She's slightly nervous understandably, but she'll be fine. She's going to a reception class in a school in a nearby village. She's great with little kids and wants to be a primary school teacher when she 'grows up' lol.
She did look a bit shocked though when I suggested she went through her hair each night with a nit comb, just in case. :)

Sally - I remember when my youngest did her work experience. She decided to join a group of archaeologists hunting for King Alfred's burial spot.
Well, being archaeologists, what do they do after a hard day's digging? As you've probably seen on 'Time Team' - they down a few pints!! Even though she was only 15, and one of the diggers was a special policeman - they took her!!
She came home on more than one occasion (all 5'2 of her) over the shoulder of a 6'6 dreadlocked archaeology student. Thoroughly enjoyed her time there!! LOL
Well, she went on to take a degree in Geology, and 10 years later, she and the (not dreadlocked any more) ex archaeology student are still together!!!
