This is my first ever post for 2009 and this being the third day of a brand new year. I love new beginnings. Despite the tough economic times, I remain optimistic and excited about this year. My instinct just tells me that some of the great things will happen in near future.
I know I really should post something profound for the brand new year, but I just don't have it in me at the moment. But seriously, the word 'school' seems to be lingering on my mind so, I will just post this.
There are only a couple of days left before the new school semester opens which means a new class, new teachers, new lessons and everything new. This will be the last few days of the kids to indulge in cartoons and video games before homework starts piling up. It seems my kids are now enjoying every precious minute of their remaining holidays. On the other hand, I guess they are enthusiastically looking forward to the new semester to start, and so begins another year of fun, challenges and excitement. Needless to say, the past few weeks have been a great escapade for the kids away from their stressful moments, thoughts, and concerns.
Orientation session begins today but this time it is for my daughter's brand new year in school for the Secondary 1 classes. My hubby drives her to school today and hopefully she'll adapt to her new environment and everything will work out fine for her.
The first week of school has always been the toughest moment as everyone struggles to get back into a routine and remember the daily activities that help make things work smoothly. As school begins, I guess I would need to wake up early with the help of my alarm clock, of course and ferry them to school. That said, there will be the usual morning rush hour when school is open. Of course the school bus schedules play a major factor as well.
Anyway, here’s to another incredible 365 days of:
Much to be thankful for
Much to look forward to…
Cheers to 2009!
