Forging ahead with The August Break challenge hosted by Susannah Conway, the next prompt is 'Jump'
Here are Jacob (R) and Isaac (L) walking across the park opposite our house last Thursday morning. Jacob is making the jump to S4, becoming a senior pupil, and this year (academically at least) will be concentrated on working towards exams.
Isaac is making the huge jump from Primary to Secondary school. The first few days have not been without their challenges. He is exhausted in the evenings with so much new information to assimilate: the timetable, culture, multiple teachers, new classmates, and he finds the day very long. So do I, missing them both terribly until we all get used to the school routine after the summer holidays.
One part of the jump that I am enjoying though, is knowing they are at the same school again, and will be for the next three years, until Jacob leaves and jumps again.
