When I started this blog, Alexander was 4, and Sam was 10 or 11 weeks old. We were a couple of months from Alexander starting Prep, and were still undecided about whether to send him, whether or not he was ready. His paediatrician cetainly was of the opinion that he wasn't, and that he wouldn't cope with school at all.
Today, I dropped Samuel off into his first day at his Pre-Kindy room at Daycare. And I dropped Alexander off to his first day of Year 2! His third year of school. He is in a composite class of Years 2 and 3. How far we've come, my friends. My boys are growing up before my eyes, and I can't believe how fast it's going.
Time moves on and like the tides, we're simply powerless to stop it. It moves forward and leaves us breathless in it's wake.
