School Again

23 Sep

It is another September and the children are back to school, this time with a twinge of excitement. Did you ask why? Well it is a brand new term in a brand new session, which means brand new classes with brand new thingies. By that I mean new shoes, bags, etc. Everything is generally new.

Now while the kids are celebrating “all things new,” parents are examining the deep holes in their pockets. Parents generally have the deepest holes in their pockets during this period. Schools squeeze and parents have no other option than to respond.

It is a thing of pride and joy when the kids get promoted into a new grade. Right now my eldest daughter has roughly three years more to graduate from high school. She is so proud of her result from the last national exam (I am proud of her too if I say so myself). And she wore her new “seniors” uniform today with a bright smile. The last kid also reached a landmark-she got into high school today! She too wore a big smile to school. She can’t get over the notion that she is now a “big girl.” Then my boy began his second year in high school. He wore a smile too (but not as big as the others).

I am happy and proud of them all, in spite of the deep hole their progress has created in our pockets and I am sure that all the parents out there share my joy because it is a reflection of theirs.

A big shout out to all parents!

    Congratulations! Enjoy it as they will soon be done with it and moving on. My baby is 35 and teaches kids like your babies.

      I really can’t believe how fast these little ones grow. They don’t even want to be called babies anymore! Thanks for the kind words.
