Nearly the end of term for me, but both daughters have finished and are basically home. They’ve both worked so hard, and are enjoying some well-deserved rest, and personally I can’t wait for a bit of R&R too!
It was weird collecting our younger daughter from her accommodation on campus – it seemed hardly any time since we took her there in September. The accommodation hasn’t been the best, but she’s had a great first year, loving her course, and made some lovely friends, mostly through the university Christian Union, and is really enjoying going to a big, lively, city church.
Daughter number one, meanwhile, has got her work placement sorted and the dissertation is taking shape too. Our concern over lack of flatmates has been resolved (praise God!), and the current two are graduating in a couple of weeks’ time!
The annual angst over the Student Finance applications is very nearly over (only 1 more year of completing that form – hurray!!).
The annual cycles continue….year 13 have just finished their A2s. I feel sadness at them leaving, but pride that they made it through and are launching out into the next phase of their lives. And the year 12s are beginning to realise they need to get a grip on their future.
Hoping you enjoy a summer with rest and recuperation!
Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
