Wednesday – January 16
As if our children have not endured enough change and transition, Hubs and I have decided that the kids will be attending a different preschool after Chinese New Year. We selected their current preschool based off the amazing facilities even though it was not near our house.
When Hubs is home, he can get the kids to school in about 15 minutes on the scooter. When he is out of town, it takes me over an hour on two buses to get the kids there.
My morning looked like:
1 hour – ride 2 buses to take the kids to preschool
1 hour – ride 2 buses to bring Selah home
1 hour – clean the house
1 hour – ride 2 buses back to preschool
1 hour – ride 2 buses back home
spend the rest of the afternoon recovering.
We also learned that even though this school had amazing playgrounds and indoor play rooms, our kids never played in them. So while Schäfer was learning an incredible amount of math, he was not getting much physical activity or creative play.
Even though we were tired of the commute and intensive style of teaching, what finally made us search for another option was that the school won an award which made the tuition increase… a lot.
So today was the last day of the semester, but also our kids last time to be in San You Kindergarten. It ripped my heart to change their lives once again, but there was no way we could keep sending them there. Hubs snapped a few photos on their last day.
