Well folks, today was the day!
My son Uzair woke up this morning fully excited to start up a new brand new chapter of his life: His first day in school.
Wearing his little bag on the shoulders and carrying his little water bottle in his hands, he roamed in the home proudly telling everyone that he is going to school today.
Along with Uzair, Zainab, my niece, also started up her school today.
My heart filled up with so much joy as I saw Uzair enjoying this big moment of his life. Although he and Zainab just went today for an introductory session, as normal classes will start from next week, I have this strong feeling that he will enjoy his this new phase of his life as much as I can expect.
He will make friends, he will learn new things, he will start understanding the world around him and will open up his mind to new and exciting possibilities.
The second brick has been placed firmly now!
