the little girl graduated from pre-school yesterday.
it is one of the most gratifying moments in a mom's life. she's only turing 6 years old next week and i know we still have a long way to go. a lot more gratifying moments to come -- her 7th birthday, her first day in high school, her first menstruation... college, first love.... well, i'm (crossing my fingers) hoping first love comes after college. she came in 3rd overall, i think, since the school is progressive and as a rule, does not give numeric grades. but she was called 3rd to the last so i figured that's it.
next week, she's taking entrance exams at the little big man's school. wish us luck.

i so look forward to the many more fruitful years ahead.
all kids her age starting 1st grade next schoolyear will be working the new K+12 curriculum to be implemented by the philippines' department of education. this means 7 years of grade school and 5 years of high school.
