NEWSLETTER No 16
It feels like we just blinked - Summer in Switzerland finished, the colours are changing for another spectacular Autumn and the temperature is dropping for the arrival of Winter.
Finally our kids are both in the same Primary School as our son starts Grade / Klasse 1 in the local Swiss School. There's lots of excitement with starting in a new school together with a variety of mixed emotions.
For Parents, it's seeing their little ones off, and wondering if they're going to be totally independent and enjoy the next phase of their young lives.
For kids, it's wondering how their new environments will be. The new class, dynamics of the kids, the teachers, learning new languages, making new friends and wanting to be included as opposed to being excluded. They are also having different kinds of body changes, from teeth falling out and new ones pushing through to the introduction of puberty. The list seems never-ending.
We can only hope that the kids will find their feet, make some great friends and love learning new things at school.
