alex the pupil

alex lost her first tooth today.  and another one is soon to follow.  she will be turning six in two months and soon after she will go to elementary school.  i know i have said this a thousand times before, but i don't think i have said it enough: time goes by so fast.

last thursday, alex took the entrance test for the international baccalaureate english primary years programme (ib-pyp).  daddy and myself were so nervous that day.  we both went with her, together with andy.  then when we were queuing for registration, i could feel alex's chest beat like crazy drums.  it was so nerve-racking. i was particulary nervous.  there were about 80 candidates and only 20 will be accepted. i really want her to be accepted in this program because it's our only option for an english-based education.  and the best part is, it's a state school (read: free education).

the test was in two parts.  she did the school preparedness test and interview. then there was a written test.  i was really happy when it was over.  i feel and am confident that alex did her best.  moreso, she seemed to have enjoyed it.  she even made a mock test for me at home which was similar to what she did. now, we just need to wait for the results...

good luck alex!
