Allahu Akbar, We are Winners!

It was a great weekend for the children here.  We are all very grateful to be able to report we won both the soccer game and field hockey games, maashaa Allah.  Jamilah and Jennah have a great coach which is evident in their winning 16- 1!  I was really paying close attention to her coaching style which I would describe as  tough but fair.  They are all learning to stay in position, pass the ball to the sides of the field, and be open at the goal for the pass. I just love it.  It takes me back to when I played and to be honest I really do wish I could coach, but the athletic director wouldn’t even let me volunteer when she found out that I have 7 children, lol.

secondplacehatAs for the art competition, Yahya received second place for his knitted hat, alhamdulillah.  We didn’t make it to the event until the end so apparently we missed the awards ceremony. Many of the buildings were already locked too around campus, so we really didn’t get the chance to explore as much as I would have liked.  The campus was really nice though. The art studio was recently donated by a dentist who is also an artist.  I rememered the fields from when I played high school field hockey games on them.  We met another family from his school there and they informed us that the class sizes were very small here and the student body was more diverse than some of the other private schools in the area.  Not sure how much they have to offer in the way of scholarships and financial aid though.  We’ll see…

    Assalamo alaikum,

    MashaAllah a lot of positive stuff has been happening your way! Congratulations to all.
    We only have one independent school here (which is way out of our financial league) so mashaAllah it is good that you have a good choice. InshaAllah if it is good for you all it will be made easy for you.
