summer has officially begun.

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’!!
