my girl...

My girl is off on a big 3 day adventure to Berlin with the school today. The field trip is part of their 'Unit of Enquiry' on Borders and Territories. I know that she is one very lucky and very fortunate Aussie kid to have the opportunity to do this. But I wish she didn't have to go! Well, it's just that I miss her so much when she is not here. 3 days...that's a long time you know! For me it will feel like 3 years. I think part of the reason I feel so anxious is that we are so far from home, family and friends anyway that for Em to be even further away just makes it that little bit harder to deal with.  I just have to concentrate and focus on the positives of this school field trip and the benefits it has for my 10 year old. She will be a much stronger and independent person for it and will have so much knowledge she can share with us about the history of Berlin and the Wall. She won't even have time to miss me! One very lucky little Aussie Babe for sure! 


Love you and miss you (already, even though its only been 4 hours!!) my Em...
