Back To School

School  has  re-opened  after the summer  break.And to be honest it didn’t start  off well.We all ran out of patience  on the first day itself  since the usual van which takes the children to school didn’t turn up as the driver is still on  vacation.As a result,within a short period of  time,we took into service  an alternative  school transportation  to shuttle the children back  and forth to school.It wasn’t an easy task.
Though the long  break from school has  revitalized the kids,they are  still not ready to go into studying mode right away.I guess it will take  a few more days  to get adjusted to the swing of things  and get back to the customary  routine.Moreover,it’s just a matter of days before their summative exams start and I have no idea how to get them back on track from their present  frame of mind. Being away on vacation and from the hustle and the bustle of the morning mad rush,had a great impact on me as well.I had  totally elapsed the usual school rules and regulations.It had completely slipped off my mind that my youngest had to be attired in Scout uniform every Tuesday.Though he reminded me just before the school van arrived, there wasn’t enough time to run upstairs and change his uniform,so I had to do a bit of sweet-talk to cheer him up before  sending  him off to school.
I must admit that I  will  definitely miss  the daytime noise and the clamor,the fun and the frolic  and anecdotes of my children that re-energized me during the lazy summer  mornings.Hence,halfhearted and  reluctantly,I  unwind  and   bid  goodbye  to the  holiday vibes.

  1. We have been back for 2 weeks so fortunately, the kids are starting to get into the swing of things. I hope it gets better.
