    I didn’t know childcare was a class. Now they have it for an elective is the students want in my son’s high school but it’s not mandatory and both boys and girls can take the class. I do remember being made to take Home-Ec when I was in Junior high while the boys took Shop. I learned how to cook and sew, which actually I didn’t learn because I hated the class. Especially the sewing. Now Home-Ec, like Childcare, is an elective and anyone can choose to take it. So interesting how time has changed since then. #MMBC

    I am so pleased it is going well for you both, sounds like you a have a good school. Such a good update and nice to hear. I just had my first dealing with headlice late last year, it was awful. xx

    I found the back to school programme very interesting. We never had childcare classes but sewing was compulsory. (I actually wish I had paid more attention at the time). However we also got to do woodwork so think we got the best of both worlds. As for nits, 2 years ago we seemed to have them constantly. Couldn’t get rid of them for love nor money. Thankfully now the cohort has changed and we are critter free! #mmbc

    I have been recording Back in Time for School. We haven’t got around to watching it yet though.
    I did childcare at school which was only in the mid 90’s hehehe and my teen was taught about babies in Health & Social care.
    It sounds like all your kids are doing great! What a difference in your Little Man. It just goes to show you were right in moving him.
    You’ve said it now, every time I say we’ve had no head lice they seem to appear. hehehe

    I never had a childcare class, but we (girls) did have to learn how to make a bed, how to cook, sew, iron and keep a house while the boys got to build interesting stuff!

    It’s funny how much the school curriculum has changed, isn’t it! Although I do think it would be good to include a few of those “old” lessons because I don’t have a clue how to sew and I always feel embarrassed when I have to ask my mum to sew on my daughter’s brownie badges! Haha.

    I’m so glad your kids are feeling settled at school – it makes such a difference to their learning when they feel settled where they are #blogcrush

      I hated sewing classes, but one of the first things I bought when I was earning money after leaving school, was a sewing machine! I still don’t like sewing much though.

    I’m with you Anne. And, I think I learned how to make beef stroganoff and mac and cheese. Crazy! Thankfully, our girls have no such limiting moves in their curriculum. xoxo #thatfridaylinky xoxo
