Away for 3 months ...

I am going to India tomorrow! Yaaay!! We are going for 3 months. I will come in August. Woo hoo!  Gouri’s marriage is on June 2, we are going to attend it. My classmates bid me goodbye with tears and hugs, so I kind of felt like some celebrity. It is summer here now, so they changed the school timings. The school starts at 7:25 and ends at 12:00, now I reach home early. Our new flat in India has been already furnished. Now there is only 1 thing left: live in it. My grandpa and grandma are also going to live with us. But the best part is that my cousins, kunjunni and kunji chechi are just living opposite of the flat. So any time I can go and play with them. I am also going for swimming, drawing and math tuition. Mom is even thinking that we both should go for yoga class. Breathe in……… breathe out………………. These are the reasons why I am so excited. I can hardly wait to go!

We could choose 5 activities and we would play 1 activity every Wednesday. But my friends and I made 2 groups and I had to spend 2 hours racking my brain because my friends considered me a “topper” since I got good marks.   The reason I even took out Scrabble from my cupboard was because at first we didn’t have anything to play and we were desperate.  The worst thing about being a “topper” is that your friends ask you for a solution for almost everything, even if you have f
