So that's it. They're all gone!
Back To School
Today I am feeling very emotional. For the first time in my life I'm alone! All 3 of my beautiful children have gone to school, what am I going to do without them.
Chloe who's now 11 has started secondary school, she's so excited about the new chapter of her life. There's so much to learn and loads of new friends to be made. Better school dinners and much more freedom. Theses will be the years where she finds herself and grows into the young woman she's going to be. I'm excited for her but also very anxious, I have no idea what the future holds for us now. Will she enjoy school like I did and make the most of it or will she struggle and find it hard, go off the rails or fall in with the wrong crowd. Only time will tell but I will be here to guide her safely through every step of the way.
Lily who's now 7 has just gone into Year 3 so this will be her first time in the Juniors. I'm not really worried about Lily as she's the class geek, bless her. With a glowing report last year she's eager to keep up her good work and impress her new teachers. Lily's a very sociable young girl, she gets on with everyone so I never really have to worry too much about her. I know she will try her best and get on with what she has to do. Lily loves school and luckily her school loves her. Lets just hope she enjoys this year as much as she did the last one.
Last but not least is my little man, my baby, my sweet boy Ryan. Today he started Reception in his big sister Lily's school. He was so excited, he practically jumped up and down all the way to school. I was so worried that he would get upset and cry when I had to leave but he didn't at all. He was happily playing in the sand box and waved me goodbye, I was so proud of him. My little man is growing up so fast, I wish he would slow down. Being my last baby, I'm finding it really hard to cope with letting him go. I know he will love school and I know that he will make lots of new friends but I also know that I'm going to miss him so much.
I can't believe that all 3 of my babies are now in full time education. It's the start of an adventure for them and the start of a new beginning for me. Now that they're all gone, it's time for Mummy to go back to work. Life is never going to be the same again and that makes my very sad. I know that the future will be different but I hope that it will be exciting and brilliant also. Who knows what the future holds for us, I guess only time will tell (exciting).
Did your little ones go back to school this week?
