All stories about parenting, raising kids and the way they see things.


Every thing has to suit in 6 luggages + 2, mine incorporated. From clothes and shoes to cables and textbooks, to title a several. There are things that we have to have to enable go of. Matters, in spite of their sentimental benefit, have to be thrown at the bin, be offered on Carousell or donated. 

Packing our things en route from Singapore to Canada is no straightforward phase. It takes time, knowledge and considerably filtering, that even if something has been stored at the leading of our cabinets for more than two yrs, we just have to shut our eyes and let go.  What prodded me to write this are the feelings of booklets and workbooks that we have to leave as they won’t just healthy in all these 8 suitcases on the plane. There are other issues that we require to allow go of other than these publications.

When Cherin Hale was 8 several years aged in 2019, she took an entrance exam at a distance-understanding faculty primarily based in the US. I was concerned she would not in good shape ideal to the predicted amount, which was Grade 3, only to uncover out later when the end result was unveiled that she was one particular yr forward of her stage. The administrator questioned us regardless of whether we were prepared for our youngster to be accelerated to Grade 4. I consulted my spouse and my friend about the possibility of Hale’s acceleration, its execs and cons. After cautious consideration, we made a decision for her to skip to 4th Quality in the American Curriculum.

We were being so happy of our daughter! Took a image of her with each other with all those workbooks we ordered from her university and even posted it on Facebook! Who would not be proud of a little one who obtained accelerated!?

Rapidly ahead to 2021, the fact now lies ahead of us. Our Visas are all accredited and we have to start out anew in the Land of Maple Leaf… And it’s time to depart the issues we ought to go away for we can’t bring each individual aspect of us in the luggage. It breaks my coronary heart (very seriously) that inasmuch as those people booklets meant a large amount to us, for it is the evidence of the really hard operate of my daughter and the proof that homeschooling is under no circumstances uncomplicated, we just have to say goodbye to all of them.

I have her Report Card handy. Her grades have been currently verified with her faculty. If we ended up only transferring within just Singapore, of program we’d provide those people booklets with us. Having said that the price tag of freight is way too high-priced to shoulder just to provide all the things with us.

Oh, I’ll overlook those handwriting when Hale complained to me about homeschooling. I’ll miss out on people drawings that showed how a great deal she valued our family… I’ll overlook these web pages and each individual bit of it that showed her state-of-the-art comprehension skills for her age. Sentimental.

My daughter is turning 11 upcoming calendar year. Time is managing quickly before us. My daughter cried a couple of periods ahead of since she did not want to improve up as well quickly. I skip these times when she was smaller… But we have to enable go of the issues for practicality sake. We need to have to  shift on. What’s crucial is that we’re all leaving as a family members and living with each other in a new region.
