I know we all celebrate the coming of the New Year every January but, September always feels like a New Year to me.
With the changing of the season
with that little nip in the air when you go out of a morning and even the smell of autumn
and mother nature preparing her natural food store lots of berries and nuts for our wildlife to share during the winter months.
As September comes to a close I think about all the other changes.
All our little one's going off to nursery and school for the first time, our bigger ones moving up to the juniors and on to secondary school.
Massive changes for our teenagers who will have waited nervously throughout the summer to get their GCSE, AS and A level results and I hope all of yours got the results they wanted or needed.
For some of our teenagers they will have gone on to sixth form and college and some they will have left home for the first time with going off to University or out into the big world of work
(all of which can be a bit scary).
But as number 3 is always telling me this is just part of our life cycle.
Thank you to all of you who left comments about number 3 going off to his new school. So far he tells us that he's loving it and it's better than his old school and he has even been selected to join the after school sports club which is fantastic for a young man that has many challenges ahead of him as he goes into adolescence. He had a fantastic birthday and I think there are going to be a lot of interesting times ahead for us all as he starts this new chapter in his life.
