Bye Bye, Welcome and little more…

Last couple of days were filled with little action and the days just flew away.

Friday was the last day for A as a student of first class. This is A’s first year at this school and the year on the whole had been a good one given that I had spent lots of time in researching for schools andΒ  talking to countless people and little of worrying. I was skeptical about the time she would take to adjust as this was her third school in her 4 years of schooling so far :-), concerned about the school culture / environment. But to my relief, she took very little time in adjusting herself, although there have been few tantrums (which I kind of got used to over the year), and the teachers have been quite friendly, and the kids were exposed to a good mix of all activities.Β  And the day of her last exam was a perfect timing as SIL and my little niece came down to Hyderabad for their vacation. So I came home little early, packed bags and headed off to my parents’ place for our weekend vacation. As we were just taking in the joy of playing with the little one after a long time, my brother made a surprise visit Saturday morning and the joy just doubled πŸ™‚ I love surprises in all forms πŸ™‚
It was fun being in the midst of all of them, watching the kids running all over the house, each one following the other, both of them fighting for the same thing ( doesn’t matter if they actually play with it or not), A having to act like a big sis and forego things, showering love on each other for some time and fighting for some more time πŸ™‚ Sometimes for me, it was like going back in time and watching my past, the troubles of putting to sleep, non-stop blabbering while feeding meals and continuous trips to the bath rooms and never-ending running after πŸ™‚ I realized once again that we forget things too fast, it felt if I really had gone through all this!

Monday was the time to welcome telugu new year and its all the more fun when all are at home πŸ™‚ We gorged upon the Ugadi pachadi, pulihora and rava kesari,  I was too busy in emptying the dishes that I forgot capturing a snap of them πŸ™‚

Got introduced to the ‘2048 game’ over the weekend by my brother and got totally hooked to it. I played it too much last night that I had a terrible time at office to not fall asleep 😦  Am not sure how long the craziness is going to last but am totally totally crazy about it right now πŸ™‚
