End of an Era

Today is the last day of school for us ~ and then things will explode with childish exuberance and energy here at home. Mr Busy is on the verge of being out of control at the moment, such is his excitement and enthusiasm for life! I'm enjoying my final hour and a half of peace and tranquility!

This afternoon will make a significant ending for us. I will no longer be the parent of all Primary Schoolers. After today I will have a secondary schooler. ~sigh~ Wouldn't things be kinda nice if kids could just stay in primary school, where life is fun and full of adventure and the woes and cares of kids are relatively little?!

I'm off to prepare a prayer for our Thanksgiving Service, thanking God for our teachers. Hopefully I will hold myself together this afternoon!

Your school years must run different than ours. Ours go from August to may or June. But, it just hit me that you're in the summer now, right?

Yes Tracy, our school year is vastly different. We start at the end of January or the beginning of February and end in December. We use summer holidays and Christmas holidays interchangeably, given that the two coincide here.

We're officially in summer and we being quoted tomorrow for evaporative cooling...but it's not feeling too much like summer right now. In four weeks' time it'll be a whole other story though.
