On the 29th of January 2002 I walked a painfully shy little girl into her Grade 1 classroom at Mapleton State School.
Last Friday the 15th of November she finally walked out of Nambour State High School for ever. It feels so strange that we are finished with school it's going to take a while to get used to. I wasn't able to get a last day photo as I was in Sydney but this is one Lucy took
It's tradition for Sunshine Coast students to go to the beach on walkout day and go into the surf in their uniforms on, this is the girls on their way to the beach.
The last week of school was a busy one with graduation and the Formal
Lucy on stage after receiving her certificate
Formal day was a touch more stressful I went to the gym at 6.30 then straight after my session Lucy and I had to go to school for a couple of hours we were there from 8 to 12 she had a few things to complete and a farewell morning tea to attend. The hair and makeup appointment was at 1.30 then with not much time to spare had to come home get dressed then drive out to her friends house get into their car and drive to Mooloolaba for photos before arriving at the formal by 5.30.
