So this weekend we were busy. Sleep overs, good byes, and just wrapping up what really has been a good year at school for my kids.
When you move and have to find a school for your kids, it’s a big responsibility. Of course the tendency is to want to look for the best school. But how do you measure best or good?
This is our 5th move and I have learnt a few things. One thing I’ve learnt is that ‘best’ is not always ‘best’ for me and my family. And because of that I tend to look for what best ‘fits us’. And so I have applied that lesson to the task of finding a school.
After a year at this school I can confidently say that I think I have found the best ‘fit’ for my kids. If there is anything I am sure of – it is that they are third culture kids for sure. So it is only natural for me to try and find that school that has a community of kids who are going through the same things as they are.
Well it’s been a great school year for them. They certainly surprised me by excelling in all areas – academically, socially and emotionally.
I am a happy mama.
Now let the ‘summer begin’!!
