Independence



This year for the first time, Jake is taking the carpool by himself.  Last year, he had his Di-hia Kyle with him who helped him with his ginormous school bag.  I wonder how he would feel now that his Di-hia Kyle has joined A-hia Matt in Manila for college.  

Tomorrow is a holiday to celebrate the Philippine Independence Day and today my grade 3 son, Jake, brought a homemade flaglet for a school activity.

How fitting it is that the holiday has an added meaning for me this year.  Our elder sons have grown wings.  And Jake, our 9 year old, kissed my cheek, walked out the door and rode the carpool all by himself.

All is good from here on.
