Ahhh… my first born is in school now! How has the time come and gone? It is true what they all say that the time really flies by when you have kids. I find myself basing any future planning around their ages, like can you believe in 10 years time, Baz would be in Year 10! He would be preparing for his HSC and it won’t be long before he would be moving out of home for university! Elli is no better because she will be 2 years behind Baz so if you actually think about it, from a travel perspective, that’s 10 years of travelling that we can do with the kids before they will be doing their own thing! When you consider things this way, making time for a big trip every year isn’t such a bad thing! That will be 10 years worth of memories which again, in the larger scheme of things, is not a lot!
What I’m trying to say is, yes, the time from when he was a baby to starting school has just passed by in a blink of an eye! I wasn’t sad, in fact I was so excited for him and the wonderful and challenging experiences he will be faced with in his new world. His pre-school and his new school have done such amazing jobs to make him excited for this next phase! We had a slightly challenging first week which was expected but now, he’s already made new friends and he loves his teacher so we can’t ask for more. Can’t wait to journey with him through his school years now!
