Double Start and Emotional Moment


To Senior Primary first day, R,
And Primary, first day, J,
Already R has got quite far,
And J is on her way! 

It is with pride I see them steer,
Thus, further, as they may,
But cant avoid a little tear
How fast has come this day!

    Seems the 17th of January 2018 was a lump-in-the-throat day for many an adult South African!

    Before you know it they will be graduating from school.


  5. Aw I love those hats. I always felt hard done to that my now obviously inferior school did not consider hats as part of the uniform! Seriously, welcome to my world Leslie, and the wish that time would stand still just for a little while longer! 🙂
