We Move On..

The boy brought back an "Angry Birds" lantern and a packet of candles from school yesterday.  He said it was a small token from the school for being selected as the top 5 best self-made lanterns of the class.  He submitted a cheese cake themed lantern he made with hubby two weeks ago, no photo of the "cheese cake" as I did not take a photo of it. 

He was thrilled to have had received the small gift and it's indeed a good start for him who is slowly adapting into the new school environment.  He starts to talk positively about the school in contrary to before as he missed his friends at the old school so badly.  I'd told him once that his gf's mommy from his old school told me about how her girl's eyes turned red when she told the mother about the boy's leaving the school.  She told her mom that some close buddies in school even shed tears when their class teacher broke the news to them.  I kept a low profile on him changing school as the exam week was approaching when we knew we got a placing in his new school.  I wanted him to complete the exam with a focused mind before saying bye-bye.  He didn't disappoint us and scored 95% in overall percentage, the highest  of the 3 exams he sat for this year. 

One day, a week after changing school, the boy found a piece of paper with his buddies' names, contact numbers and addresses written on it, his eyes turned red and shed a little saying that he misses his friends so badly.  Seeing him like that, it really broke my heart.  Being a sensible and thoughtful boy that he is, he quickly covered up and told me that it was a silly prank of his and I was dumb enough to fall into it as soon as he sensed my sorrow.   My boy.. he is just too matured for his age, isn't he?

I am happy and relieved that things have slowly fallen into place and you know what, my blogging mojo is back!  Stay tuned for more updates!

A very thoughtful and sensible boy indeed. Glad to know that he is adapting well in his new environment. So now he's not in the school that Ashley's going next year? Still waiting to read about why he changed school :)

I see Ian is adapting well in his new school, and even won himself an "angry bird" lantern :)

Too bad you didn't snap the "cheese cake", I wonder how it looks like...
