Finally, spring break is here. The last few weeks were quite eventful and tiring, so for this reason, we thought of not going anywhere and just chilling at home.
Kids have again outdone themselves and we as parents are so thankful to God for this. My older one has bagged a trophy for his school in the state championship and going to nationals. Previous week we heard that our younger one has qualified at a state tournament and competing in nationals next week in Chicago. Double happiness! Wait!!! The main news is coming !!!!
The older one is selected in the most prestigious school of our state. It's quite difficult to get in and the process itself is quite tough to filter the most accomplished students all over the state. On one hand, it's amazing, and on the other hand, we are quite anxious as a parent because the school is residential. Our son is quite excited because they have amazing facilities and research material available there. He is looking forward to it.
So this fall, he will be joining the school and leaving home. It's two years earlier then planned and besides being proud and happy, I am suddenly counting days. I need to make up for all the days when he won't be here, so I thought of making all his favorite foods over the spring break.
We celebrate every good news with sweets and when the news is amazing and there is triple the happiness, we need triple layered sweetness.
