And she's off...

Tonight the YFG will be staying in a room like this...

and she has been told she will have a little spare time to visit a chocolate shop in Ypres!

but one of the highlights of the trip will be tonight, when she will walk to the Menin Gate to watch the Last Post ceremony.

The excitement over this trip has been building all week, and her case lays open on the sofa this morning ready for the last minute things to be packed.  I will be waking her up in 10 minutes, and we will be off to school at 7.20am, ready for the off!  

Not only is this her first overnight trip away with the school, but it is her first time abroad ever, so she is hoping for a good time, to learn lots and have some new experiences!

I know she will have a wonderful time. France was our favourite holiday destination and we still miss it so much.
