Well it seems just only yesterday that I was packing Sam off to Secondary school, leaving him sitting all alone in a great big hall, he didn't know a soul! That didn't last and he made lots of new chums.
Now he is leaving school to hopefully embark on a two year stint at college ( if he gets the results he needs).
Tuesday evening saw his prom. Suited and booted he looked so handsome and grown up, I did shed a little tear, in private I hasten to add.
He traveled in a Limo with six other friends and they all looked smashing.
Typically he played the fool when I took this picture but that's Sam all over!
Wednesday was leavers day when they basically have a nice big assembly the teachers heap praise on them and then they spend the rest of the afternoon scrawling messages over each others shirts and saying a tearful goodbye.
Thursday, today, his last school trip, a day at Thorpe park and then thats it!
16 years have flown by, he has some wonderful memories of school, mainly being the class fool/joker, certainly not the academia. To say he is glad to leave is an understatement.
But now onwards and upwards, a new chapter, whatever he chooses to do with his life I will always be proud.
He is my Sam and I quite simply love and adore him. Until next time......Nicky xx
