Of high school elective orientation, surprise reader – Day 96

Monday evening, Adi and I went to the high school to attend the orientation for this specific “elective” that I chose for her (remember all the drama and how she finally liked it). The girl already decided to chose this elective in high school. Happy mommy 🙂

It was mind blowing to be around the high school kids. They all were so energetic and so cool that I just want to go to high school again! It looked like college to me and all I was doing in that 1.5 hours was to picture Adi in that environment. My girl is going to high school in few months. Goshhh!!!! I am a high school mom.. OMG, OMG, OMG!!!! Someone stop me from jumping!!!!

Tuesday, I went to LHB’s school as a surprise reader. He didn’t know about it and was pleasantly surprised to see me 🙂 So when I surprise him like this on some evening to go pick him up all he does is run towards me and I spread out my hands to wrap him up and carry as high as I can. That moment is a moment to cherish forever and ever. Coming back to the reader part, I read a book about “people in the neighborhood” – community helpers. My hero got to sit next to me as we read to the class. Each kid had so much to share and followed the rule to raise their hand and wait for their turn to be heard. I felt like a teacher for around 20 minutes with a bunch of 5 year olds sitting in front of me and those curious pair of eyes staring at me 🙂 🙂

I love these school visits. For that matter anything that keeps me closer to my darlings 🙂
