Today my little Léon left nursery forever. After summer he will start real school in primary one at Kirkhill along with his sister who is going into primary six. Leaving nursery is more of a parental experience than a child's one. The children, although they know they are not going back, are too small to be overly moved by it. The parents often cry inconsolably at the loss of that period in their lives. I still have two babies going to nursery so leaving Hazeldene today for Léon's last time was less traumatic for me. I knew it was simply an au revoir rather than an adieu, though it did bring a lump to my throat! I guess when I see him in his over-sized uniform in August I'll be reduced to mush!
