    Nice to hear about you & your brothers big age gap yet you sound close. I am the eldest of 5 & there is an 8yr age gap between me & the second born child. My youngest sister & I are great mates now that we are both adults but growing up it was a little difficult at times.
    Oh to be 17 & in'love' it comsume you at that age, lol..........
    I hope your brother has a great year.

    My little girl Started Kindy last week. I had to go out and buy the whole uniform (even though the princess refuses to wear anything but the dress..lol) I'd complain but OMG she is tooo cute & it will be re-used next year for my other daughter.

    At least I know sending her to a public school cant be more expensive than sending her to daycare.

    I used to have a crush on a boy called lockie when I was about 11. He was this gorgeous boy with big blue eyes and a blonde mop. Wonder how he turned out LOL.

    I havent had to replace any uniform thank goodness. This is Ava's last year at primary school so I didn't want to have to buy anything else.

    CD, I am the oldest of 5 too (although I do have 3 half sibs here in Oz so technically I am actually the oldest of 8). No big age gaps though, of the 5 of us who all grew up together, there is 10 years between me and the youngest (who is also the only boy lol)

    Be thankful it's just a swimming carnival, As part of the enrollments (not including uniforms or school fees) my high school expected parents to pay $200-$300 to go on a school camp in the first week. Then there was a swimming carnival after that, then the excursions began.

    I'm glad that i've been out of school for about 3 or 4 years now (I forget), TAFE is much cheaper even though i'm paying.

    There's a 12 year age difference between my brother and I, I practically raised him but since I don't have contact with my parents and he has Autism I can't contact him. He goes to a special school though so I don't think my mum has ever had to fork out any money in regards to raising him. She even gets petrol paid for. I don't really agree with all the government assistance when it means that they don't even have to spend as much money as they would on a healthy child.

    I'm not so sure about that I have an autistic son who lives with his grandparents(as thats what works best) & although they do get some extras it's only like $70 pf & his the excess on his meds & therepy alone is nearly double that. We contribe extra so he can do extra stuff also as the more therepy he dose the better he gets but the goverment only help with very basic therepy.
    I guess if you where not interested in getting the best possible outcome you could nearly do it with the goverment payments but it still would not cover everything.
    Sorry about you being parted from your brother it must be very hard on him as rontinue is so import for autistic kids.
