… and he had his first day in school today.
My Little Dynamo had his first taste of a real school setting today in the pre-school of the university where his Lolo (grandfather) is the university president.
He is the youngest and the smallest… as expected. He isn’t even a regular student… he is just there to have a feel of a school environment. He can go to school when he wants to… if he wants to. He can even play in the President’s office anytime he wants to… can Lolo say no?
He may have been the youngest and the smallest but he went to school in complete uniform… new black shoes, white socks, a school uniform set of khaki shorts and white polo. He was up to it. He has visited the school grounds several times… the visits prepped him up to go to school with anticipation.
He was introduced by his teacher as their new classmate and the kids welcomed him as one of them… they initially gauged one another but they immediately warmed up to each other despite the language barrier.
At least for the kids, it was only the language barrier that seemed to have provided a wall during their introduction. For the adults, he is not just the “ang Engliserong bata“, word was already out that he is the “apo ng Presidente”.
Anyway, Little Dynamo is set to enjoy his school life here in the Philippines. Mommy will make sure of that, with perks or none.
