Last Monday, June 8, was our son’s first day in school. He is now officially a 4th grader. How time flies! To be honest, we aren’t ready for school yet, and if he had his way, our son would have wanted to extend his summer vacation.

He has grown bigger and taller, so we had to buy him new uniforms. He didn’t bring his Hawk trolley bag to school last Monday as they were asked to bring a small bag only for the entire week, hence, the backpack.

I went with him to class that day to see his new classroom, to meet his new homeroom adviser and to take a mandatory first-day-of-school photo inside the classroom.

He was excited to go to school to see his classmates and friends but a bit apprehensive about their new teachers. He was hoping to have teachers who are not so strict. They will be meeting all of their subject teachers today and will be following their official class schedule starting next Monday.

As Grade 4 students, they are now being trained to be independent. They now have their snacks and lunch at the school canteen, but he hasn’t been able to eat properly in school since Day 1 due to lack of time. He also goes home later than 4:00p.m. every day because class dismissal is at 3pm and he still has to wait 40 more minutes before his school service departs.

There will certainly be major adjustments for our son this school year, but I hope that he will adapt quickly to these new changes in his school routine. You can do it, son! Mommy and Daddy are here to help you in any way we can.

  1. He is so cute. He looks very smart too. Good luck to your son’s 4th grade schooling Sis. Our school is about to end in about two weeks. My summer babe will be in 4th grade this September.

  2. Indeed, time flies so fast. Before you know it, binata na ang anak mo.. And sooner or later, he’s going to have a girlfriend.. Ang OA lang nag pagka fast forward ko.. Anyway, I wish your son the best this academic year 2015-2016! Break a leg!

  3. Happy new school year! I remember our Grade Four days. Being independent in school starts during this year. Boys will wear long pants instead of shorts. Classes are longer and subjects more challenging. Good luck and have fun learning!

  4. This is so sweet. I don’t know if my mom saw my classmates din on my first day of school, but I hope I get to see my daughters’ classmates on their own first day. 🙂

  5. Wow! Kaiyak noh? but, yeah time flies so fast! Next thing we know, college na sila! But yes, I know your son can cope with it! He looks strong and confident!

  6. Ang cute naman.. They’re so excited for the incoming school year.. I remember my woes when I was entering Grade 4, hoping that I can cope with the lessons and finally be added to the top honors… #pressure lang ang peg hehe…

  7. Awwww….why the lack of time to eat? Is the canteen far? Anyway, I remember that our major adjustment during my time was 5th grade when our classes would be until 4pm then. First grade to 4th grade were half days only at that time. Kids nowadays have much bigger load.

  8. Time really flies! It feels like it was only yesterday that my 2 kids were in 4th grade. Now they’re both in high school!

  9. Aww. . . your son looks like a smart kid. How time flies. My eldest daughter is already on the 6th grade. And before we know it, we’ll be sending our kids to college . . . Haay buhay. . . =)

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
