Another chapter in our lives is over.................

It is so hard to believe but Sebastian along with his mates finished their school lives yesterday. Schooling in Australia (NSW) goes through to year 12, and yesterday was the final day for all year 12 students, they have a couple of weeks break and study time before returning for there final school exams. Sebastian attends a boys boarding school about 1 hours drive from home.

Geoffrey and I attended the senior sportmans dinner at Sebastian's high school on Thursday evening, Sebastian was lucky enough to be named the Best and Fairest player for the 1st 13's.

Then we attended the Graduation assembly at school yesterday morning before helping to set up the function centre for last night School Formal. This is always a big night on the school calendar and last night was no exception. Sebastian being the out going child he is, decided to wear something a little different then the rest, he worn a baby pink suit with black shirt. Believe me he looked great, he is just one of those kids that can get away with doing something like that and it was good as he was very easy to spot in the room of 450 people, 99% of the blokes worn their black dinner suits. Geoffrey, Alicia ( his partner) and I all colour coordinated especially for the photos and this is the result.
I am sure all the boys had very mixed emotions, it is a big change in their lives, and another chapter of ours over, we shared the last couple of days with Sebastian's mates parents which was a wonderful time for us to remember. Nicole was home on uni holidays so it was special for her to be able to join us also.

Now that our school days are over we look forward to the next chapter in our lives where ever that may take us.
Until next time thanks for dropping by and sharing my life

Oh you must have been so proud. Glad to see your son follow's his mums flair for colour and textiles with his suit. He's clearly been around patchworking fabric for a long time ~ love Julia
