Isn't change a funny thing?
I'm usually the first to say I hate change. But after a change I always feel so much more alive.
Today was our 5 year old boy's Prep Orientation day. He got to check out 'The Big School' for a couple of hours and I got to check out just how much our lives are about to change. I've been preparing him (and myself) for months but when the moment of change arrives it's never the same as the way I've played it out a million times in my mind. We aren't actually in the new phase of our lives just yet, he doesn't start until next year. But this morning as I dropped him off and picked him up I scanned the sea of new faces (and three familiar ones) and wondered who if any I will get to know better, become friends with or never see again. I get a ridiculous burst of adrenalin when I'm faced with anything the slightest bit out of my comfort zone, so right now I am buzzing big time. This is a big step. Our first child is starting school. Our whole world is on a precipice. It is almost time to wave goodbye to our old lives....a new adventure is about to begin!
