Back to School

Summer is over in this side of the world.
And once again its back to school for us and yep, we are on our second week.


Our young girl is now into her intermediate years (she's now a fourth grader) while the little boy is officially a preschooler. Still trying to complete back-to-school checklist. Still on adjustment stage from financial to physical and emotional aspect, two students means twice the expense of tuition fees, books, uniforms, car pool, school materials, twice the study session, twice the activities and twice the fun and twice the craziness!...the list goes on!
Another big change this school year is that our fourth grader will now have a full day schedule while the preschooler is on an early morning schedule. Waking up earlier than the usual is also new for us since we were used to afternoon classes. This means new bedtime and work schedule adjustment which makes me appreciate our work's flexi-time scheme, fitting for working parents :)
Last week was madness, waking up so early to prepare for our breakfast and kid's snacks and then there's constant nagging to our slow-eater and picky-eater plus them taking a bath and dressing for school uniform seems takes longer. Oh well, its first week, right?
School is back! 

How about you? How was your first week of school?

  5. For my kid's first week I'm pretty blessed to not have experienced any tantrums from her, but maybe cause I enrolled her in summer school and had her tutored by a teacher in her own school today hehehe.. :)

  7. I have a little easier since my 2 kids are teens and in high school. They wake up on their own and get ready by themselves. I just see them out the door after they've eaten. I miss when they needed me more... I'm excited for my youngest to go to school though!

  8. Good job, mommy! It must have been hard for you with 2 kids with morning classes. We're homeschooling our 4yr old which makes it easier for us to adjust in our schedule. I can just imagine the craziness once he goes to a regular school.

  9. My sister's first week of school? She almost always like because she still wait for her other classmates before entering the school - so they will arrive the school altogether. By the way, she's in high school already :)
