Last Wednesday, my nephew, Jarva, had his first day of school. In Queensland, kids now attend “Prep” prior to starting year 1, so I guess it’s pretty similar to pre-school, except they attend 9-3, Mon-Fri.
After spending so much time with my nephew the past year, I must of grown attached to having him around so often. So I was a little (ok, a lot!) sad to see him go off to school.
Here is Jarva, all excited to be heading off to his brother’s school. However, he soon became upset when he realied he wouldn’t be in his brother’s year 6 class.
Holding back the tears a little and being brave. I think he’s just realised, “I have to stay here all day…..”
Next Wednesday will be my “First Day”, back into training camp…..I hope I can be as brave as Jarva.
