Dear Little Miss
This is now the longest time we’ve ever been apart since we became a family eight years ago. I’m missing you; your cuddles, kisses and companionship. The house seems so much quieter and emptier without you. Its not the first time you’ve been away from home, as you have done a Brownie sleepover but this school residential feels different. It is an adventure and you are trying new and exciting activities without me there to encourage and cheer you on. You are now old enough to be creating special memories with your friends as well as your family and I’m sure the PGL trip of Year 5 will become a much treasured trip for you all.
Thanks to digital technology, Daddy and I have been able to see you throughout the trip on the school feed, we’ve admired the photos of you abseiling, raft building, fencing, whizzing down the longest zip wire I’ve ever seen and just playing with your friends. It all looks so much fun and there you are smiling, confident and looking so grown up. I’ve heard it was you that started the singing on the coach and I’ve seen the video of the raft and you leaping into the water with so much zest and squealing in delight as you splash down. You were so excited about PGL and now you’re there you seem to be relishing every moment and I couldn’t be prouder. This is what life is about its trying new things and embracing every opportunity, please never lose your energy, enthusiasm and passion for life, it makes you the very special young lady you are.
I am so looking forward to seeing you tomorrow and although I’ve missed you, this trip has been amazing for you. I can’t wait to hear of all your adventures and to start planning new ones too.
Lots of love
