The school year is finally over for both kids. This year was particularly tough on both of them. My son had moved to a new school for High School, one with a very challenging curriculum. My daughter, on the other hand, is undergoing a bridging program, where they will be tackling 2 grade levels in one school year and one summer term. Pacing was fast and many students couldn’t keep up. They both had their difficulties. But they regained their bearings and managed to do quite well. So today, I am grateful for all that this past school year brought us – new challenges, new friends, new responsibilities.
