It's my girls' last day of school for the year today. For whatever reason, I'm filled to the brim with emotions.
Maybe it's because this year has just gone by so fast. In the blink of an eye, the girls are another year older and so much more wiser and mature and grown up.
Maybe it's because I'm feeling sentimental and nostalgic and I don't want these precious early years to go by so fast.
Maybe it's because I'll have to say goodbye to my closest Dubai friend today.
Maybe it's because I've got 10 weeks of school holidays stretching out ahead of me. Yes, 10!
Maybe it's because I over indulged last night while watching the Soceroos. Oops.
Maybe it's all of that.
The past couple of weeks have been filled with end-of-school year productions, assemblies, concerts, ceremonies and they've all been just lovely. I'm so proud of my girls.
By tomorrow, I'll have shaken it off and moved onto the next phase – how to entertain 3 kids in 45 degree heat. But today, I'll soak in a little of that emotion.
