Last week was a memorable one for me - sending my first born to his first day of school.
Musa is 2 years old, a bit young to send to school, some would argue - but I noticed his eagerness to learn for quite some time already, and I know my working hours limit my ability to give him the kind of exposure he deserves. Besides, he was getting a tad too clingy and I thought some time away with others kids would help build his confidence and social skills.

And Musa really loves the outdoor life (daddy's boy for sure!), so that became a priority in my search for a playschool too.
