*rubs eyes* is it almost March already? I bet your wondering where the year has gone! well we can tell you with a series of updates of our families! So sit back, wriggle until your comfortable and get ready to hear all about whats been happening over here in Cambodia!
We will start with our youngest members and work our way up-
Kids, Our little star lights.
Even though Christmas is not a Buddhist holiday, for some strange reason their school decided to throw a big Christmas party, and our little disco divas loved every second of it, each class did a dance performance in front of the whole school where they could show case their best moves.
All our little ones moved up a grate last semester, and while Raksa aced every class with A's, the rest struggled in the higher grade. On seeing their first semester results we knew they needed some extra help and assistance, So Mumma Cas marched down to the school to question why they all received such low marks, when attendance is 100% and participation is at 95%.
After a chat with both the teachers and the principle it was decided extra assistance in the classrooms was necessary. When second semester rolled around every single score had improved a grade, the D's had turned to C's the B's to A's, they all came bouncing in to show us their improvement. Smiles from ear to ear! Proud. As. Punch.
This year, one of our smallest bubs started "Big kid school" He was riddled with excitement everyday before he started, waking up every morning asking 'Is today the day?'
Unfortunately our little Darlin has been in hospital all week with a severe parasite, something thats all too common here in Cambodia. We are happy to report he is now on the mend and will be back at school in no time!
