It was Lula's last day at Primary school today. It has been an emotional week of farewell celebrations, memory books, t shirt signing and a leavers' assembly . She was presented with the 'Academic Prowess' award and more importantly to her- a gift voucher. Prowess is an old fashioned and slightly comical word to my ears but we sat and clapped as proud parents. There was a projection throughout the assembly of photographs and events from the last academic year but what stuck in my memory was a quote from one of my favourite poets, e e cummings.
I had to make this tonight to mark the occasion for me as much as her.
A week off now, I definitely need it!
