What an exciting couple of weeks it has been in our house!
We have seen Chloe (our eldest daughter) graduate from High School today, after 13 years at the same school. Two weeks ago, she was finishing of her Trial examinations in preparation for the real thing in three weeks’ time. She did two music performances (over two fabulous nights of entertainment) in preparation for her external music performance exam which was held last week as well as completing numerous University applications for entry, scholarships and also Early Entry all with a variety of deadlines and requirements.
Last week Chloe came down with a cold and while she was looking forward to her last days of schooling, she ended up sick in bed. This week, on Tuesday she was rushed from school to hospital in an ambulance with chest pain, rib pain and vomiting. After a couple of hours observation, and some pain relief, she was sent home missing half of her last official day of school.
Then it was “muck up” day – where graduating students get to cause all sorts of havoc in the name of fun! Her year decided on the theme “what I want to be when I grow up” and wanting to be a midwife, she had a gorgeous “Call the Midwife” outfit, but she wasn’t if sure she was going to get there. At the last minute, she decided to go, not wanting to miss anything but as long as I went along too (ready to take her home if necessary) she was happy 🙂
Today was all about graduation! First a breakfast for families at our local Anglican Church followed by a graduation assembly at school.
I was constantly being asked if I was sad and how I felt … not sad at all! Totally excited for what is in store next for Chloe in following her passion and her dreams.
You just never know what the next chapter holds …
