My little boy has gone to France today for 3 days with his school.
We kissed him goodbye in the school hall before they left to get on the coach, (probably so the mum's didn't cry in front of them!) As we walked away my husband said he needed a drink (it was 7am!) and I wanted a little grizzle!
All day I've been thinking of him, hoping he's got enough food, he's having a good time and behaving himself!
But I've also been reflecting on the young man he's becoming and the role we've played on shaping him.
It's hard work being a parent and I'm more than aware from my job what happens when you're not consistent with children and set them firm boundaries however this has to be balanced with new experiences and lots of love and affection.
I'm just hoping he's having a wonderful time and that we've sent him off confident that he can cope away from us x
This has been my project to keep me busy....
It's been scrubbed clean and has the first coat of paint on, amazing what you can get done!
