End of an Era
Today was Alyssa's Graduation Ceremony. After three years of primary school in Beijing (and four years in Bangkok), she moves on to the 'big school' next term. I have to say I found it quite emotional. They dressed in gowns and mortar boards, performed some music and gave speeches. The teachers too. And then threw their mortar boards into the air, like you do. I couldn't help but reflect on those formative, carefree times, of friends made and lost in that perpetual cycle that is an expat's lot. The end of innocence and the beginning of real life? It's been a nice school... but it's not over yet. Naomi's still there!
