He was up and in his uniform by 6.30am before the rest of us had even made it out of bed (just like his cousin Maddie it seems).
He told me a few days ago that he didn't mind at all leaving all his Bungendore friends and starting a new school, living in all these different houses, having all his stuff stored away "in the truck" (a common reference around here lately), or moving to Perth because, "I can just make new friends mum. And besides, I'm a traveller. I just like travelling and staying in different places".
Ah my boy, I really do believe you are right.
When we said goodbye to him at school, he barely looked up to see us go. And far from falling asleep in his dinner, that first big day doesn't seem to have slowed him down one bit.

So far, his favourite part of school is "playtime".
But there are days and days of school to go yet and we're prepared for possible hiccups and down days and disasters. Here's hoping the triumphs far outweigh the terribles.
We love you Henry Leo McPherson, big school going boy.
