So, we are 2 days in to our new lives. School and kindy has left us all a little topsy-turvied, if thats a word. Its left me a little lost too, if I’m honest. It doesn’t make it any easier that Ben’s not here. But not much we can do about it, I guess. It came as a quite shock to Harry that he had to go every day. That our old life of hanging out everyday together was over and this was how things were now. When I told him he would still be doing the whole school thing at 17, he incredulously cried “But I’ll have a beard by then!!!” The whole change has hit him hard, which surprised me. I thought it was Lily I would have trouble with. I went into his room last night and found him quietly crying to himself. He confided in me that while his first day of school was fantastic, he just wasn’t sure if it “was for him”. Lily, on the other hand, couldn’t wait to get back today. His teacher told me today that he asked more than once if he could go to the other side of the school and visit his sister, and tonight at bed time he told me he kept calling the girl he sits next to Lily. I guess when you have spent your whole entire life side by side with your best friend, it would be hard to be separated all of a sudden. He misses her.
I had another photo planned for tonights post, but when I went into check on them, I found he had crept in with her. I guess sometimes all you need to do is hang on to your best friends hand.
