The Kiddies resumed school this week and it has been extremely busy over here. We are getting into a new school routine and they have handled pretty well. It is their first year in Primary School. They rounded up Pre School in July and they have been counting sleeps to their first day in Big School for about a week now. I am happy they are loving school as much as they are. It would have been extremely hard if they didn’t like it so much. I don’t know how I would have handled it if they started to cry or didn’t want to go into their classrooms. That may have been the end of the whole back to school 😂
But thankfully we didn’t have to deal with any tears or tantrums. The first day was quite emotional as expected. I was feeling all sorts of emotions at the same time. A part of me was happy to see them go and another part was wishing I had them for a few more weeks. This thing called motherhood is just too hard 😢
We got some first day at school photos taken (We had to get that done, they looked too cute in their school uniforms) and off to school we went. I almost started balling at the school gate thanks to a little one not wanting to let her mummy go. But thankfully I held it together. The last thing I needed was for them to know how much I was struggling to let them go.
Day 2 went quite well. We didn’t have the rain to deal with, which was good. And we all knew what was expected already. I am happy to see them settling into school and the new routine.
My prayer is that they carry on loving school as much as they do. Their love for school and learning new things amazes me. I know they are going thrive and show everyone just how amazing they really are. And I am eager to see where this new journey takes us all. The world is now your centre stage my loves, go and shine brighter than diamonds.
How are your kids finding the first week of being back to school?
