School Camping Weekend for Amir

"Ibu ! Amir nak pi camping kat sekolah!" Amir informed me when I reached home from work. He cant wait for me to get into the house and knocked on the car window to get my attention as soon as I switched off the engine.

OK OK but let me get into the house first..Actually this is his second camping at school. The last one was at his previous school but it was not as exciting as he envisioned. I thought that will be the last I will hear about camping from him. So his enthusiasm caught me by surprise...

I am a believer of experiencing  yourself if you want to know what it is all about. So I let him go for his new school camping. It is good for him learn the hard way. The personal experience is something that  we parents can never teach your child. Make your mistakes and be courageous enough to face the new things in life. That is the only way to learn and remember. Well, I had my life lessons that way and they are really priceless and no first class university could teach us how to experience life the way we go out and DO IT OURSELVES...!!

It was a three day camping. The teacher told me that they want to try out the new trainer and if it is successful they will try outbound training for the children. Well, why not? Afterall, the school is just beside our home and I can watch them through our bedroom windows and balcony.

He left on Thursday. I cant help feeling a bit worry. What else mom is supposed to do? Anyway, on Saturday afternoon, he is already back. "Amir penat la ibu. Ibu nampak dak Amir lompat dari  tingkat 4?"
WHAT??? Then he told me they had experience abselling from the fourth floor and Bungee jump. Good for you..I have never tried any of those before. Never had the chance. Our school days , there has never been any school camping. Even if there were, I was never allowed to join them. This entry is meant for Amir..For your rememberance of your first BUNGEE JUMPING and your first Abcelling. - 22nd May 2014 to 24th May 2014.
