Way back in October last year, I wrote a post about picturing my daughter in her school uniform going to the same school as her big brother. It was a battle cry, asserting my dream and my intention to grasp it whatever it may take.
This week, the dream became reality and I had the privilege of taking Lucy to her first session at the school. It was a session where parents stay and play, get to know the teachers and help settle their children in the new environment.
Lucy loved it (as did I!). She was literally skipping around the classroom.
Today Hayley took her to the second session, this one without parents. There were no tears whatsoever and she enjoyed her time once again. Fantastic.
But best of all, a little piece of last year’s dream came true today, when both kids walked to school together and Hayley was able to take this picture. Such an ordinary picture, with such an extraordinary story.
