Tomorrow morning (obscenely early!) our Jack is off to Germany for the return leg of his exchange trip. He is all packed and ready to go despite a last minute panic when we realised that his EHIC had expired but thankfully the replacement card came through in double quick time! So at 3.30am I'll be waving him off for a week and have to admit to being a little apprehensive about it. I have no concerns about Jack as he is usually extremely well mannered (I've probably jinxed that now) but he'll be staying with the family of the young lady who we found in a compromising position with another German student when they stayed with us. I only hope that she behaves differently with her family around her!
They have a full agenda including a day in school in Germany, a trip following in the steps of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, a day in Cologne and a visit to a chocolate factory. It sounds like they will have a fab time and Jack is under orders to take loads of photos.
I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that there are actually two 3.30's in a day - I find it hard to see two 8 o'clocks!!!
