Classes in Justin’s school started last June 16; that’s a Wednesday. Because they didn’t have classes last Wednesday, June 30 (President Noynoy’s inauguration) and they don’t have classes today, Friday, July 2 (Pasig Day), they’ve just been going to school for a total of 11 days since school started.
My son is now in Pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) class. He has 14 classmates and two teachers. He still has a three-hour class, just like his Nursery class, that starts from 8:30am and ends at 11:30am. I’m still the one dropping him off to school upon his insistence, but his yaya is the one fetching him from school because I’m already knee-deep in work by that time.
He’s still wearing his old school shirts because they still fit, and like last year, I didn’t need to buy him school supplies because the school provides for these things. They have the materials for when the children need to do artwork or other activities. My boy has grown taller and slimmer (I think) too, but I still call him “baby.” When he notices that, he would correct me by saying “I’m not a baby; I’m a big boy.” Indeed, he is! Look how big he’s grown!
