Today was an extremely busy day for me. First, Isa and I attended a Mad Science preschool workshop about tasting and smelling. I was unaware of these biweekly preschool classes. He enjoyed it but didn’t want me to leave his side. I am now unsure about whether he is ready for preschool next year.
Later after picking Yahya up from school, Jamilah, who was supposed to try out for soccer today at school, called and said that she needed the doctor to fill out and sign a form before she was allowed to try out. So, I picked her up and took her to the doctor. They were unable to complete the form this evening and weren’t sure when it would be completed. So now, I am not sure that she will be able to make the deadline for tryouts at all. I encouraged her to do her best but the competition is so fierce and most of the girls already play for competitive (expensive) club teams.
Finally, our last event was Art Night at Hannah and Jamilah’s school. Artwork was displayed, food from the World Languages classes was served, and hands-on activities were available.
The highlight of the evening was meeting Hannah’s art teacher and listening to the kinds words she had to say about her. She encouraged Hannah to continue pursuing art as well. Lovely evening, maashaa Allah.
