Enrolment Day

I apologize for not updating this blog for a couple of weeks, my family and I had been caught up with our daily do’s. Recently we just had a 3 day vacation in Virginia Beach, and was offline for a couple of days. I had been trying to catch up with my blogging career and now that I’m almost back, I would like to share the day when I enrolled my 2nd grader in his New school. Forgive me for not mentioning the name of the school that he is going to for personal privacy, and to protect my children.

Anyways, it was a great sunny day when I took my son to his new school to register him. The school here in US are not as strict as in Phil that needs to have good morals documents and etch., they only asked for the birth certificate, shots records, and proof of residency. Pretty easy huh? As for the school records, I don’t have to worry about that because they will just asked the old school to send them his records, that’s how convenient it is here. Since I don’t have his shots records, the lady said that its no problem cause they can asked the Nurse of the old school to fax to them. I was like.. ok, cool! hehehe.. After that, he was already enrolled. Easy as a pie isnt it? I know in Phil, its very tough, you have to enroll your kids like every year, unlike here in US, you only do it ones, or if you transfer to a new school; then they will just mail you every year on what room you are in, and who is your teacher, and some other information such as school Bus schedule drop and pickup, school rules and regulations, and whats the menu for this week’s lunch, very convenient for parents aye? But of course as a parent, its our duty to monitor our kids progress in school. I am very happy that I got all the time in the world to do that. 🙂

Anyhow, below is a photo of my kids in the school office. The little one wants to go to school too, as you can see he is very excited and so happy about it. Well, sad to say, you have to wait when your 5 years old boy, because we are here for your Kuya Jian. As of now, mommy will be your teacher. 😀

New Place. New Friends. New School

To move to a new place here in US is not an easy thing to do. Specially if you are moving to a new State cause the laws would be different, the people, the food, the surroundings, and the weather. Good thing we didn’t moved that far from our old place, so getting used to in our new surroundings right now was not so tough for me.  But for my 2nd grader its gonna be a big challenge for him, because he will be going to a new school, and fitting in might be a problem for my soon-to-be-2ndgrader. This really worries me. I hope he will fit in just fine and make new friends. Because the last school that he attended, it took him a while to fit in.

And now he is going to start from scratch again. Hubby and I tried to find a new place just within the old district, so that he will still go to the same school. But sad to say, we didnt find anything that is within the district. We feel sad that he has to experience all these, and this is not gonna be the first move,because after a year from now we will move again to a new place. Its gonna be a very stressful year for my son, but Im hoping things will be okay for him, and I hope that he will enjoy meeting new friends, adjust with the surroundings, and get used to with the facilities in his New School.  I also hope that he will like his new school,  if not, then I have no choice but to pull him out and home school him.

Well, theres one good thing though, that my son is excited about, and that is to ride the school bus! 🙂 In our old place, he was a Van rider, because there is no school bus from Spring Grove Elementary passes by our house, so he was specially picked up by a Van, and dropped off by a Van right in front of our house. Aint that cool? Sometimes it will drive in to our driveway if Im not at the gate to pick him up. I sure miss those days, but oh well, we have to move on and accept this changes that is happening to our lives right now. If things doesnt work out with my boy, mommy will always find a solution.

I would like to share this photo below of my son on his last day of riding the Van 4. This was taken on his last day of school a couple of months ago.
