It's been a full weekend at Rock Wallaby ... and not all work-related. But first and foremost in our minds this evening is that we are a family of three.
The big girls are in town at school and Wallace is also. Experiencing the first of two nights of a transitional experience readying him (and Mum) for next year's boarding school adventure.
He is fortunate to have good friends from our small school also in attendance, as well as two older sisters. Though boys and girls are located on different campuses there is comfort in the fact that we are aware of procedures, rules and are familiar with routines and staff members ... wonderful people that they are.
Of course Sal's main concern on arrival home was the fact that she was rostered on all chores. I can see Mum's name having to be added to the list next year.
So I'm currently feeling a little fragile ... but also well aware that this is all part of the process.
Though I do wish we could stop time.
