There is an interesting atmosphere at school when we drop kids off for an excursion. It's dark and cold but the kids are all so excited. Parents are quietly anxious and very weary, teachers are steeling themselves for a long few days. Oh, I wouldn't be a teacher!
Toby was so excited he couldn't stay still for a photo.
As the sun came up we waved goodbye to the bus and walked over to our cars. A friend asked me if I was looking forward to a few quiet days. I explained that I put the wrong child on the bus if that was what I wanted.
