Day one

Charming coral could not sleep last night. Had butterflies in her tummy. Checked and double checked to make sure she had her class right. This year, the Primary 5 class allocation was posted on the school website. Matter was made worse, when she realised that none of the friends she called were in her class. 39 new friends? This morning, was up before the alarm. A long day for all as this year Primary 5 morning session will still be helping out the Primary one, afternoon session during recess. Buddy system. Pairing with the 7 year olds to buy food during recess and eating with them. Making sure they feel as ease with an older sister beside them.
Eldest checking and rechecking for the latest time table updates on the web. Apprehensive as now on, it's 10 months to 'A' level.
Son, looking forward to his table tennis practise and the up coming inter-school competition.

Yes, new class, new friends - children can get anxious if they are the sort that dont make friends easily. But I am sure she will be fine. Hope she manages to find a new "soul mate" in class.

how we remember going thru the routine when we were students, & now, we go thru it again as parents.

this is a circle game, isn't it?

She seemed to have fitted in well. Has found a friend to go recess with!

Doc
The circle of life.

Yes, we were left to fend for ourselves.
