In less than 24 hours we will come to the end of an era in the VV household.
Four years ago I sent this little boy off to Middle School (Yrs 5-8) - he was very nervous and rather daunted by the prospect of leaving the comfort of his Primary School;
Well today that little cheeky chappie had his Leavers Assembly - my goodness some of those children are now enormous! Many of them were given certificates for various achievements and for the voluntary work some have done around the school in the past year. Many were wearing the special leavers t-shirts - bright white and clean this morning - they looked more like this at the end of the day (ignore the bandage - a roller skating accident during the activity week!);
Crude measuring shows that he's grown 10 inches in the past 4 years - and I can hear those bones creaking again as he starts his annual summer hols growth spurt!
Tomorrow for their final day, the year group is off to a nearby theme park to make themselves dizzy and generally have lots of fun :)
Big son has just a half day at school tomorrow - a debrief session from the work experience his year group have been doing for the past fortnight. He has been at the Power Station and has been working with the maintenance section - he's been taking things apart and repairing them - all of course under very strict supervision. He's loved every part of this time and was quite sad to say goodbye to his workmates today. For the first few days, he left the house looking quite smart - he then reverted back to jeans/t-shirts when he discovered he'd spend most of his time in overalls, safety boots and a hard hat!
Roll on 4.30 tomorrow afternoon - term will be over - worn out uniform can be recycled and six weeks of holidays can begin :)
See you soon
