I know it has only been two days since I posted, but it feels like a lot has happened....
I emailed Oli's school (CCES), to say thanks for the correspondence and to ask questions about preschools for Isaac, testing for Oliver and their requirement for Oliver's report cards. They were very prompt in their response. They can advise on preschool, but wish to see the list we have given. Once they receive Oliver's admission form, they will arrange for the CLARITY testing to be on our look and see trip. I spoke to Oliver's teacher, Mr Ancell, this morning and have arranged to go for a chat with him next Thursday after school. He was able to tell me that Oliver's next report will be out next Friday.
I spoke to isaac's preschool this morning. They are more than happy for us to take his learning journal with us to the States in August. They were a bit surprised by our planned move, but wished us well. Think I may give them details of the blog nearer the time.....
Got a response from Worthing Cat Protection regarding the cat. They can find no record of her (typical!). They suggest we take her to the vet, get her microchip scanned, then get back in contact with them. They can then begin reregistering her chip to us. Think I will take her to the vets in between France and America.
Paul received an email from company B yesterday regarding our flights for our look and see. We fly on 25th August from heathrow with Delta Airlines. Did someone say business class??? Yes we are flying transatlantic business class, with lie down seats!!!! I was jumping around the room with excitement when he told me this. I have never flown business class. Will be interesting with 3 small children though. At least they will have space to walk around. All the seats seem to be enclosed, so at least everyone else won't have to see them (just hear them....). The boys can even have kids meals. Although we have since heard that we can order pretty much anything we like to eat. Sebastian even gets his own seat, the Federation American Aviation recommends a child restraint for children under 2. Typically they only allow one, and it is not cheap. It will be an investment though. We fly into Atlanta, have a 1h 45min lay over, which is perfect. Once we arrive in Greenville, we will be getting a 'minivan' (people carrier). seb needs a car seat, Isaac only needs a booster, and Oliver doesn't need anything. We then drive from the airport for about 6 miles to our hotel, which also looks wonderful. Each room has a mini kitchen, and breakfast is complimentary. There is also a complimentary happy hour and a pool. The boys are gonna love it.
He have a bit of an idea of our itinery, at least with regards to house hunting. 3-4 days before we fly. Company b will send us a list of 10-12 houses which they intend to show us over about 3 days. Soooo can't wait to get that list. We also have to view school/preschools and sort out bank accounts.
Flying back, we board the plane in Greenville about 5.30pm, fly to Atlanta, have a 3 1/2 hour layover till we hop back into business class to fly back to the UK. We arrive back in the UK at about 11.15 on the Sunday morning. Almost perfect flights for us.
Really need to get the blog press app, really want to start putting photos on here.
We have been making a point of taking more photos, so the boys can remember the UK and all their friends/family here.
Paul has tomorrow off work, hurrah. It is Olivers sports day, the last one he will have here. We have my mum and Paul's parent coming down. Feel the need for lots more photos.....
