Only one pan of bacon to fry this morning, only two lunches to pack and only two school hats to find.
Wallace and Sally headed off to what will be Wallace's last year of primary school before joining his big sisters in town. All going to plan this will also be Sally's last year at this wonderful school as we hopefully move to Bottle Tree at the end of the year.
Sarah and Jess were dropped at boarding school yesterday, an easy transition for Sarah into Year 10, already well practiced at unpacking suitcases, hanging laundry bags, making beds and though new for Jess, somewhat familiar having heard much from Sarah over the past two years.
We left her smiling and looking forward to all that lies ahead.
So much easier leaving two, knowing that they have each other and that Sarah will as always keep an eye out for her.
They will be home for the weekend in two short weeks, Jessie's thirteenth birthday falling the day before they come home. Menu preparations have begun.
Though hot dogs aren't on it.
