The end of an era.


Evan18 has finished his final year of secondary school.


He’s only got one more exam to go and then we can throw out the school uniforms. The Fogdancer abode has done with them for ever.


After the last day of classes, the school held a Valedictory Dinner at Crown, where the kids and parents all dressed up and went to celebrate the end of 13 years of school life.


Evan18 raced out in true ‘last minute’ style a couple of hours before and bought a suit.


I, on the other hand, wore the same outfit I’ve worn at every Valedictory.


When the last child graduates from schooling, there’s naturally some mixed emotions…


Evan18 is a true individual, with a quirky soul and an irrepressible sense of humour.


And of course, with Evan18 now off my hands, this leaves me free to go to Europe next year!

(And thanks go to Tom22, who was driven to distraction when he was trying to take these photos. 🙂 )

    Lovely photos!! He is so tall! I can see I’d better get onto that diet of yours. Lookin’ good 😉

    You must have been a proud Mum at that dinner and Evan looks very dapper in his suit! As you say mixed emotions, shifting sands, I’m sure he has a very shiny future ahead of him. All the best to you both.

    congratulations to you both.

Don't be shy... say something!
