The end of the school year

Its coming to the end of the school year now. I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown. Soon both the kids will move on to a new school year meeting new classmates and teachers.

Everyday the girl comes home with a lighter load as they return their books that were on loan. There is less homework too. The other day I overheard the girl telling her brother “Now very relaxed. There is only 1 or 2 pages of homework.”

They have finished their year end tests, collected their results and on Friday they both had a Children’s Day party at their respective schools. In the car both of them chatted excitedly about their day in school and showed each other their gifts and food that they received. They exchanged gifts and shared their food.

Each day the school bag gets lighter, the homework gets lesser and the heart feels lighter. After school they do not need to do tons of homework, rush to complete revision or anything. They get to play and play! How lovely. For mummy too, who does not need to supervise any homework or revision.

There is only 2 weeks left for the school year. A rather relaxed 2 weeks. 🙂

  1. That’s is what I am experiencing now. The feeling is so good yet you feel something is missing. It’s time to look for some fun activities for them too. As I am a FTWM, I am also looking for holiday programme as I don’t want them to disturb my MIL during school holiday.

    I, on the other hand am a SAHM, so I have to crack my head to plan their holiday programme. Headache. 😛

  2. Books on loan? Wow, that’s good to hear and I’m interested too. Does your girl’s school provide books on loan to all students? In my days, our school only provided books on loan to under privileged kids. How do I apply for the books on loan? Would really appreciate it if you could email me. Thanks!

  3. I’m glad I was your teacher
    I’ve come to love you so.
    I can’t believe the end is here.
    I hate to see you go.

    Remember all the fun we had
    in all the things we did
    But most of all remember…
    You’re a Very Special Kid!
