There are two ways to read that title.
I AM definitely getting older, some days I feel like I might fall apart. I have a hernia and grey hair and wrinkles, but that's just what you can see. I'm definitely older in mind too.
My children are getting older, all of them. This morning I packed Boy no.3 off on his first ever school trip to a farm.....
And 2 hours later boy no.1 left for The Beat-Herder Festival...
They're all moving on.
This year sees a lot of big landmarks and September is a big step for several of our children.
Boy no.1 has now left College and is awaiting his results to see where his road is going to take him in September.
Our two 15 year olds will enter their final year of High School and take their GCSE's
Boy no.3 will start Primary School
Boy no.4 will start Pre-School (Nursery)
And I'll have no babies left at home!
I've seen a lot of 'moving on' blog posts recently and I think the imminent holiday is the cause, but it really feels like we'll all be taking a really big step in my house. It's going to be an exciting and fairly scary year, but fortunately, as Mary Steenburgen says in Parenthood, "I happen to like the roller coaster"....
What boy no.3 looked like after his trip to the farm....
A true likeness of what boy no.1 looked like after last years trip to Beat-Herder..... I'm NOT picking him up in my van this year!
