Super Mom


Quintus is going on his grade 6 tour tomorrow.

He is a very independent child. Very mature for his age. Still, this is a big thing for him. For all of us. We like each others company. This is going to be a long week …. Okay 5 days but it is going to feel much longer.

Tonight was just more proof of how much my kids love each other.
Jason came to me with tears in his eyes. Said that he doesn’t want to go to school if Quintus isn’t there. Asked for a hug.
Then Zander asked for paper so that he can draw something for Quintus, that I must hide in his bag (he has many little letters hidden away). He burst out crying. He said he is going to miss his “Boetie Quinty”. Asked if Quintus can’t stay. That he is going to cry until Quintus is back home.

We are going to miss him but he is going to make great memories. I still remember all the fun we had on my grade 6 tour.

Can’t wait to have him back in my arms on Friday though….. And he is still here….. Only leaving tomorrow.

Ai I love him so.

Long, long week…

      Its the first time ever that he is away without us. I got a text from his teacher though and apparently they are having a lot of fun. Its not easy letting them go!
