First Day of School

On the last week of December (from the time we brought back her school uniform), Elyssa woke up every morning asking me "Mummy, can I go to school today?". She was very excited indeed.

The BIG day finally arrived last week.


All dressed up in her new school uniform

I took half day leave to accompany my princess on her first day of school. Must witness such a big milestone in her life!

When we arrived at her her school, it was rather chaotic - parents looking for classrooms /asking lots of questions/ changing school uniform sizes/settling down their kids etc etc, some kids screaming and crying away, some kids with pee pee incidents, lots of people around, teachers trying to settle down the kids, assistants busy explaining the school pickup procedure etc etc.
I guess pretty normal for a first day of school.

I brought Elyssa to her classroom and gave her some blocks to play with. Settled some admin stuff with the teacher, gave her a hug, said my goodbyes and off I went!
(ok, I admit - I hung outside the classroom and peered through the windows for quite a while before I finally went home).

As expected, no tears, no fuss and no drama from my brave little girl.

Playing blocks in her class

I picked her up after an hour plus (short class due to orientation) and she proudly told me she didn't cry at all and that she liked her new school.

Yay!!! Way to go Elyssa. We are so proud of you!
