Starting School

The time has come for Qasim to start going to school. We have home educated him so far, due to there not being any suitable schools in our locality (thanks for that government cut backs).
But eventually we have got him into a mainstream school with two aides, a nice power chair for his own independance and safety, and enough written instuctions on "What To Do In Case Of Fracture" to sink a ship!  I'm sure it's not just me who has ever been a little on the over cautious side when sending their OI'er into school - well that's what I'm telling myself anyway!
So, off we go to school, me more nervous than Qasim to be fair. And where are the tears of don't leave me mum? I don't know either. - I'm still waiting for them to appear.
I have still been on site in case of emergency and while his aides get used to handling him, and he has only been in for two hours max at a time until he gets used to it - but no seperation anxiety - really??
Ah well, maybe he just can't wait to get away from me!
But what ever the reason, he is absolutely loving his time in school.
Maybe when he is there for a whole day, he may start to miss me - just a little would be nice........
