A new chapter
This morning I went to enrol my daughter in her future new school, the junior high school (or secondary school, or as we say in France "collège").
In less than two weeks, school is going to end and it's going to be the end of primary school for her.
When I left the office, it was the break (my God, the bell rang SO loud, I almost had a heart attack) and all the kids where going out of class, and they looked so big compared to her.
I went back home with tears in my throat. I know this is very silly. She's growing. It's a new chapter that she is going to write, and today it makes me feel very nostalgic.
I know it's going to be great. I know it's going to be exciting and challenging. I know.
But today, I just feel like I felt when she started pre-school, years and years ago. My heart is happy and proud, but also heavy, and a little worried.
