Ira's first day in P1 (2011)

It's the big day - the start of the new school year, and Ira's first day in primary school. I was quite excited and a bit worried. We have been discussing his wake up time and he suggested it should be 4am since he knew he was hard to wake up. Kelvin used to wake up at around 5-530am when he was taking the school bus. Fortunately, on the first day, Ira woke up quite early. I was just finished making his breakfast (chicken pop corn) when I came back to the room to wake him up. He was already awake! He was probably too excited also to really sleep through the morning.

After having his breakfast, he took a bath (another concern of mine last year since I used to bathe him and he didn't want to shower by himself. Good thing he decided to be independent just before the Christmas season)., brushed his teeth, and then I helped him dress up.

We were quite early, 6am and he was already dressed up. It was not until 620am till the bus came. He was ready for school. The rest of us followed with Kelvin, and took a commuter bus.

A very nice boy. He is quite responsible for a P2.

After eating his snack, I asked him to go to the courtyard to see Daddy. They talked for a few minutes and he was off to explore his new school. He actually didn't need that much orientation as far as school grounds are concerned as he is quite familiar with the school since he has been visiting the school every time Kelvin has an activity. I can say he adjusted quite well on his first day.

After dismissal, we decided for him not to take the school bus home so we could all have lunch together, with Kelvin, too.

So much for our boys' first day in school in 2011. Hoping they can cope well and enjoy the rest of the year with new friends and teachers.
