How time flies and how fast kids grow! I can’t believe I’m already preparing documents for her next academic year. She’ll be taking her first step into the 14-year-long system of education in June. The last couple of years at Playgroup and Nursery was all fun and frolic. Listening to some mums tell me the syllabus of their kids in LKG and UKG is already unnerving me. I don’t think I’ve been this nervous during my entire schooling and college. When it came to my education, I never took it seriously. I was never the studious kind. I was never ambitious. I just enjoyed life as it came. I’m frankly amazed how I made it past with decent grades. However, when it comes to KT, it’s no longer my life. I just can’t take the risk of being careless even for a moment. There is this huge responsibility on my shoulder to do all that I can to the very best of my ability for this young, tender life to be molded and shaped into a girl of character, worth and wisdom who will face the world with courage and make a difference. I am wholly depending on divine wisdom and guidance. The years to come – her education, her exams, etc. are going to be a whole new adventure for me. But I am confident I can face it =)
Okay. Keeping my anxieties apart, I would like to record how KT’s nursery days went by. Unlike her playgroup days where she initially had problems leaving home and settling down, this year has been a smooth ride. KT enjoys going to school. On days when she missed her van, she’ll compel me to drive her to school. Sometimes even on festival holidays when the school was not working, she’ll insist that I take her to school (that’s konjam unlike me ;)).
She has made her own set of friends, mostly girls. Most of them accompany her in her van. They are five girls and one boy in the van. And my! I totally enjoy the 3 minute drama I get to see when I pick her up from the van. On most days, the girls behave like they are BFFs. Each will compliment the other on how good they were at school. But there are days when I get to witness girl-war – fight over who shared their snack and who didn’t, pinching/beating, quarrel over whose dad owns the big toy shop on the way to school (they imagine big when it comes to their dads, don’t they?) and who gets the window seat! It’s pure entertainment!
KT has also learnt a lot – numbers, alphabets, shapes, colors, etc. She has even picked some Telugu lines. She has become an expert in coloring. Her coloring style is unique and different. I simply love it!
Here are a few pics from some of the school events she had this year –
That’s more or less the highlights of KT’s Nursery Year! So grateful for the precious memories and good times! Look forward to more in the years to come =)
