How's your New Year getting on? Fixed with your resolutions??? After a long think about this, I've decided not to have any resolutions this year, hehehe! Sometimes we tend to forget our plans by mid of the year. So...none!
Anyways, Rishie has entered his primary schooling life on 2nd Jan and we've been so busy since then. Been driving nonstop to and fro the school for the last one week. Familiarized well with the school and Rishie as usual is super ready. He has found some new friends too. I could not snap much pics...will update some time later. Wishing Rishie all the best in his new school and his primary education.
