Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Start of the school year eve

…so tomorrow, my little lady started grade R. For those of us for whom these funny grades didn’t exist, it’s the year before proper school. Although, looking at the daily schedule, it’s pretty much real school anyway, without the uniform. I’ve been a bit worried about things, because Thandi is really just flying on her own steam – reading, writing, which most of her class mates are not yet doing. And she loves it! I haven’t been one of ‘those’ parents, she has done it herself. It’s actually quite magical to watch.

The last few days though, Thandi hasn’t been quite herself. I’m not sure if it is because she is just tired after a hectic holiday; or if she is missing her beloved Noxy; but yesterday she told me that she had just had a quiet day, because she is tired, and wants to ¬†get ready for school. So, I’m letting her have the time and space. I am also a bit melancholic – passing of time, too much work and I am also missing Noxy. (Although Vuyo, our new helper is a treat!)

Tomorrow a new chapter starts for my little lady, let it be another great year of achievements and milestones.img_7914

School holidays are great but it’s been too long now – for parents and kids. I think the kids miss the routine after a while.

We have been in uniform since Grade RR already and since Grade R is the same campus, it is the same uniform. They do teach them a whole heap already. The reading and writing is great, she is going to fly. Good Luck for the first day ( ours is only next week).
