except for class trips, the girl has never gone on vacation without us & neither have we gone away without the kids.
so, it was a totally new experience that she went on an overseas trip with her schoolmates today. i posted on this earlier this year. (read here)
as concerned parents, it's difficult to let the young ones go but we consoled ourselves that this would put her in good stead when she eventually leaves for varsity in 3 years' time. moving around with her group of schoolmates, i know she will not be alone & more importantly, she's God's child & will be under His care.
what did get me worried (a bit) was that when i tried to call the hotel reception in siem reap, the guy could hardly understand me & i don't think i speak bad english either. this is supposedly a 4* international hotel in the town centre.
we do really look forward to her return next week.
