On Their First Day Of School

---Wakaba enters Elementary!!---

While it was fine for us to walk with Wakaba to school at kindergarten, parents have to let the kids walk to school on their own during their first grade. For the walk home in the afternoon the kids are organized into groups based on which kids live near each other and they walk each other home. Elementary kids wears yellow hats and yellow cover for the randoseru ( backpack ) to let the drivers see them and to catch the drivers attention when they are walking to and from school. I was worried at first and wasn't comfortable of Wakaba walking to school without me but during the time that I attended the seminar, the kids in the neighborhood were organized into groups and one of the kids who will walk with her to school is a friend of Wakaba living next door to our apartment. That somehow eases my worries... Wakaba started her class a day after her Entrance Ceremony and during the first week of school, I waited for her near the school for pick up and then walk home together.
---Moeka chan, a fourth grader picked Wakaba up and they walked together with some other kids to school in the morning---
---Haruka enters Kindergarten!!---
---It was a rainy day on her first day of school---

Haruka was pretty excited to wear Wakaba's uniform during her kindergarten days and was a lil bit big to Haruka but I did an adjustment just to fit her perfectly. I thought that Haruka would be shy or apprehensive on her first day of school but she's still the same Haruka who started her preschool at the same school. If you are a reader of Kizuna, you might have read Haruka's Day at Preschool series. I have seen some kids crying when their parents ( mostly Moms ) left them at school and I have seen the faces of other Moms getting worried as they leave their child. I can relate to the feeling--I have been there... ohh..reminicing Wakaba's first day of school! But Haruka was different, she knows the names of the teachers and some kids at school and they started to play when I dropped her on her first day and just said 'bye, Mom!' to me and then go. But there's something that she asked from me that was stucked in my mind while we walked towards school: ' Mama, hitori de daijobu?' ( Mama, is it alright that you're all alone in the house? ) Haruka is worried about me??!!

Okay yung ganun mommmy ha. Maaga natuturuan ng independence ang bata at the same time natututo rin sila makipagkaibigan sa ibang bata. At okay rin ung purpose ng yellow hat at cover at least me signal ang mga motorist. Pero dito sa pinas khit siguro neon green o reflector ang ipagamit sa mga bata, dedma ang mga driver.

Because of your kindness to me, I am giving you an award. Please feel free to grab it anytime you want :)

nabasa ko din ang pre-school days ni Haruka kaya naman isa yun sa nakapag motivate sa akin i-enrol si anzu sa pre-school nya ngayon, once a week nga lang. Mas naging friendly si anzu since then.. sana nga di sya umiyak kapag mag-isa na sya..

ANg cute naman nila, mukha talagang excited sa school nila. Big milestones sa inyo ang year na to.. di na sila mga babies hihi..

ANyway, ingat palagi.. kahapon atakai dito pero ngayon maulan na naman hmp...
