Thank you so much everyone - sorry for the delay replying, been on a camping holiday in the Peak District for a couple of weeks enjoying this fabulous weather! We only saw her briefly before we went away - to clear out and clean the house - so it was lovely to have a celebratory drink or two in the garden last night. Now looking forward to Thursday and graduation - although it's an early start as they've given them the first time slot and they've got to sign the RVC register beforehand, so we've got to be there at 7.30 ūü§Ē. I'll try to put a photo on!

 

Right, must go.... Got a mountain of washing to do.

It seems like small fry compared to the successes of many, but DS2 (who is no longer dancing so perhaps the D is now Darling not Dancing!) has just got his GCSE results, and exceeded our expectations. Not by getting a zillion 9s or A* but by actually overcoming 3 years of immense psychological difficulties and going on to sit through every exam and pass enough to go forward to 6th form college. 

I think I cried just as much and with the same level of joy as when DS1 got offered his contract at the Bolshoi.

Off to celebrate!

Congratulations to DS 2! Having a daughter with ADHD I can identify with your feelings.

Like Celib B, may seem small fry but I think the wild celebrations from staff and family for my musical DD's E in maths at A level far exceeded the scholarship offers for music college - done on sheer grit and determination not to be beaten.   

 

Not easy juggling a full academic time table with 14 hours per week scheduled musical activities, and that's before you think about practice.  I am very proud she met her personal goals and is a thoroughly decent human being.

Another proud house here of a non dancing but musical DD. After 3 years in 6th for various very unpleasant reasons DD went out on a high with her final result in Biology ( an A in AS )  The best thing is she didn’t even need to turn up to the exam because she has a unconditional based on her audition and her results from the year( only 2 A levels and one was below the minimum requirement) So a very happy house here and a spare room slowly filling up with university necessities.

lots of lovely news on here - congrats to all. Delighted to be able to add to it - DD2 - who has felt a little lost as to what direction to take after deciding not to go onto professional dance training has also just passed A levels and got into university.

 

Dining room starting to fill with university necessities, DD1 home for a few days to unpack from rehearsals and pack for her next contract. Oh and DS home for the weekend to see his sister off and grandparents visiting tomorrow. So think of us all in this madhouse as today is Christmas for our family as it will be the end of May before we can be all together again.

That's lovely news about your younger DS CeliB 

i would never have guessed he has had such problems as he is so articulate and interesting to talk to!!  I still remember our really lively  chat about Max Richters music ....and a certain tv programme showing at the time ....I am sure he will do well in the sixth form.

Congratulations to other Forum DD's and DS 's who have done well recently too......August is such a nerve wracking time waiting for exam results and making important decisions for the future

Here we are on graduation day - had to do a selfie. Started work as a vet this week - sounds like she's had a great week.

Good luck to everyone who has non DD off to university etc. Our spare room has reappeared but the exciting the house is rather difficult, somehow it will all fit in the car tomorrow and musical DD will be off on her next adventure.

On the plus side, have just raided musical DD's cupboard for some shoes ... oddly something I never did when she was away at school.

 

She's finding it quite challenging, a lot of the students know each other already from NYO, something she never did.  But I'm sure she will find her feet.  Surprise visit from brother lead to photos of them in the bar clutching pints, something she wasn't renowned for before.
