When the news about us moving came to Matthew, we were still in the Philippines. I had been thinking for awhile about how to break the news to him, for I wasn’t so sure about how he was going to take it. But then, one day, he overheard about the move from one my conversations with Hubby over Skype.
I gave him the confirmation that indeed we were going to move to Florida and stay with Grandma and Grandpa for awhile, which also means he’s going to transfer to a new school. Surprisingly, he didn’t mind the move at all. And he was excited to transfer to a new school. He did, however, have a little bit of a concern –
Matthew, to Hubby over Skype: “Daddy, if I transfer to a new school, am I going to be Kindergarten again? Cause I don’t want to!”
Hubby, aka Daddy: “No buddy! You’ll be 2nd grade.”
And he was fine!
(I think, it was a valid concern!)
He’s already met his new teacher last week. He said he’s nervous, but he’s fine while he anxiously waited for the school bus.
He has grown so much, so fast! 1st Day of school always breaks my heart. Sigh!
