Ode to Summer

Jennifer Lawlor

I'm not great with endings. Thankfully David is the opposite. Change, in his opinion, usually signals growth and new beginnings. It's good having someone in the house who thinks like that.

When Callum finished Montessori in June I was feeling lots of emotions but mostly sad; something that had played such a big part in his life over the past three years was coming to an end. I hoped the next chapter for him would be a positive one. Starting primary school was a major milestone. Would he like it? Would he be happy? Would he make friends? Would he like everyone? Would everyone like him??

"I am an old man and have known a great many troubles but most of them never happened" - Mark Twain

Today, on the last day of summer, Callum started school. And as is often the case my worrying was pointless. This morning while I was helping him put on his uniform it didn't seem as monumental as I'd imagined. When we left the house it 'almost' felt like any other day. When we settled him into the classroom everyone was relaxed. There were no tears thankfully - from anyone! It was a big day but it couldn't have gone more smoothly. Note to self: Stop worrying! The last day of summer and the first day of something great.
