#3 Son finished high school on Friday, and Mrs Fitz is cheering loudest of all. Special thanks with gold stars are due to two special teachers. First, Bronwyn Masterman, whose dedication to her students, helped #3 son through so much of his final year. Second, Jenny Middleton who has now helped all three of our sons to excel in their IT related subjects. Thanks ladies, and may Googling your names reveal a thousand praises.
I have just returned from a big day’s driving. I deposited #3 Son and a pack of his (now ex-)classmates at my favourite place on the planet, Fraser Island, for the schoolies week. Fortunately, there was a low tide in the middle of the day, so I could get on and off the island on the same tide.
I was prompted to write about this by fellow Brisvegas blogger, MadameBoffin, who wrote about the joy of watching her two-year-old nephew explore Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens. It’s so important to let youngsters explore the great outdoors. Otherwise, they grow up believing the four basic elements are concrete, steel, glass and electrical cables.
