Sheesh - it feels like it's gone really quickly.
We get reports tomorrow morning which is exactly why I wanted to write something tonight so I'm not swayed by what the reports say, or don't say.
I realised a few weeks ago that it was around this time last year that we attended the open day. Since it was our first school visit (to any school), I thought we shouldn't get too excited and that we needed to visit at least two others to do our due diligence.
But that was the one. I remember saying to a pre-school mom friend that if we don't get in (we're not zoned), I'll have to homeschool because I really am not into any of the other schools.
It's almost sacrilegious to admit that we didn't bother completing applications for any other school.
Anyway, I love the school. D loves the school. The kids love the school.
We love the teachers.
It's such a huge difference to how I felt about the pre-school, I can't even explain.
One of my family goals for this year is that the kids would adjust well to school. I thought that would take a few months.
Truth - it took a few days.
D and I have also adjusted.
Since we bought some extra clothes at the secondhand uniform shop, we're good and I don't have to think about having clean school clothes more than once a week.
I make lunch every night and (don't throw tomatoes at me!) I love it! LOVE IT! I feel like I did when I was making their baby foods years ago. Like I'm nurturing them and caring for them well by doing this act of love.
My second love language is acts of service.
I need to still adjust to only having holidays during scheduled school holidays.... the crowds, and the expense of flights and accommodation due to the entire country being on holiday all at the same time.
But other than that, school is good!
How has your first term been?
