I used to have what we called Freedom Coffee on the first day of school with the others moms back in the days when our kids were younger (& we could gather around at a cafe with a crowd!!)

This year it’s was Champagne!!!! After 5 MONTHS of being at home it was time but it was a little bit of a bittersweet moment: On the one hand, you want to celebrate & on the other hand, it’s the end of the bubble 🥰. Summer is over

Distance learning started on March 18, he went back to school for an hour on June 18 and we are back full time in school on August 18… hopefully it’s for the long term 🤔. Let’s Grade 11 and IB start.

The photo was actually taken yesterday afternoon. He learned a long time ago that it is less painful to comply right away because I can nag him for a very long time for a photo. However I’m granted 5 takes, I have to plan ahead and pray it will work out because just like any diva it’s a take-it or leave-it, non-negotiable deal 🙄

Back to School (finally!) tomorrow.

Trying to be pro active and get everything ready… when I realized that the maximun Top-up amount on the school lunch card had been significantly increased with the latest update of the online lunch ordering system.

At S$10 spent per day and with 180 days of school a year that would take 55 and half year to through this much money. 😉

It’s not like I’m not used to see her let go of my hand around this time of the year but in the years past I would see her step off the school bus a mere few hours later.

Nowadays letting her hand go to go to school involves airport drop off and see her come through those doors are not counted in hours but in days…. 101 to be exact.
