Rain or shine – i go to school
Akshara has been going to the Treehouse play school for almost 2 months now. She enjoys going to school now, but the first few weeks were anything but that. Vidhya had to stay along with Akshara at the school for the first week, where Akshara wouldn’t even go an inch away from Vidhya. Slowly, things changed. Akshara realised that there was more scope for her shenanigans at school than at home and started enjoying it. Some photos from her schooling trips!
The below two photos are from her first day at school. When we left home, she thought that it was just another “tata trip” (outing) and she was happier to have a bag of her own too. Of course, it was a different story at school. Back from school, she was back to her self and started enjoying the school books. That is her school “uniform” next to her in the second photo.
The next two photos are with the school uniform. The uniform actually is just the t-shirt. The good part about treehouse is that they say that the kids can wear this on fridays. It is only “can” and not must. The other school, Bachpan, that we had enquired required that the kids come in uniform on 4 days of the week and i wasn’t in favour of this “rule”.
With the monsoons active during July and August, we had to get Akshara ready for all weather conditions, as she usually walks back from school. The umbrella was already her favourite accessory on trips, but it was more for photos rather than for actual use. So, we got her a raincoat. Even though her school had taught her the purpose of a raincoat and when to use it, Akshara wasn’t convinced by it and insisted that she would wear the raincoat as and when she wanted it. So, it is not strange to see to Akshara walking out of the house on a bright and sunny day with the umrealla and the raincoat!
