Rhyme and Rhythm

Sparsh has been treating us to some wonderful songs for past few weeks...just realized that it was all for the rhyme and rhythm day at school! Looks like the little master did pretty well!

Festivals of 2012

Festivals are integral to a culture rich upbringing. I am glad that schools are reinforcing the same by celebrating all festivals irrespective of the faith and belief. Festivals make ordinary days special and here is a glimpse of how Sparsh celebrated the recent festivals-

What goes in the tiffin??!!

Big school means big infrastructure which means a little distant location..long bus rides..longer time away from home and therefore need for a filling snack in the tiffin! All this is very unlike a two hour playschool where tiffin is more meant to teach sharing and less focused on really eating!

Well the early attempts to give healthy food like dosa and paranthas were futile as the tiffin came back almost untouched. I next resorted to dry and cruncy food like chikkis, pop corns, honey loops, etc.. But how long can we put the same stuff so slowly started introducing fruits..and to my surprise the tiffin can empty..fruits seemed to have worked. But again everything gets repetitive after a period of time and just when I was running out of ideas, this came to my rescue-

real simple, real easy and real healthy...well i guess I am not running out of options till the time that Archana is around :-)

Greenwood High Saga

School.....probably the word that takes most adults on a trip down the memory lane bringing back all the experiences which probably shaped what we have become today. because I attach so much importance to a school and its significance in our lives, we spent a lot of time before we zeroed on "Greenwood High" as the Alma mater for Sparsh.

He officially started school today without any tears on tantrums and as we waved our hands watching him board the school bus could not hold back the tears which signified my little boys new found independence. Wishing him all the very best in life...muaaah!

Own room in new honeycomb

Life has moved on and we did make a few upgrades here and there. Finally it was the turn for a new honeycomb and as we toiled to transform a new condo into our new home. The best part of all this was decorating Sparsh's new room in "Car Theme"! We were probably more excited than him about doing the room and sure are please with the end results. Here is a sneak peek!

Feels like a fish!

Everybody says that Sparsh is a water baby and they have reason to say so considering he takes to water so naturally. This video captures his first attempt at swimming( off course with floaters!).

Graduation- from playschool!

Graduation!!!! Blame it on lack of touch with modern times...but a graduation ceremony is what we had least expected from the annual bash at Sparsh's play school! To top is Sparsh was the first one to walk up to the stage to receive his graduation certificate, clad in a gown and hat :-).
My heart skipped a beat as the crowd cheered for him (I guess most of them were in the same boat as us and were not expecting a full-fledged graduation ceremony) and he stood there with all the grace...for us it was more of a flash forward of what might really happen two decades later...but this was as serious and as important as the one to come :-). Congrats Sparsh!
