Today, Fandango asks, ‘What is the one thing in life you are most excited about? Why?’
On Tuesday 9th June, my kids go back to school. Zippidy-do-dah! Can’t wait.
I love them of course, but kids aren’t meant to be indoors all day, bent over devices, taught by parents. It’s no substitute for real school, real learning.
I think they’re chomping at the bit, too, but for T2—he’s more hesitant to return to the school yard and classrooms. But T1 and Our Girl are keen to see friends, get outdoors, breath fresh air, and experience the comfort of external structures.
Slowly, slowly, we’re coming back. T1 has soccer training tonight and Sunday, with a view for matches to begin in late June or July. Our netball club is considering commencing training from next week, too.
As if to underscore my excitement, the sun is shining and the skies are bright blue, proving that, even in the chilly morning air of winter, the promise of hope dawns with each new day.
