After a half day off school on Friday for a teachers’workday, the girls, Isa, and I attended a teaparty at Girl Scouts. In addition to the snacks and tea, they played some games and just got to spend some time with their friends. Meanwhile, my husband attended Yahya’s soccer game. (By the way, Jamilah didn’t make her school’s soccer team.)
So, after that short hiatus from homework, the girls were back at their assignments in Saturday. Jamilah and Hannah have both received a project in reading class, so they requested I take them to the county library to check out some books. To be honest, I prefer they utilize their school library more now as they seem to be able to take greater responsibility for their items, but Jamilah, my bookworm, insists that the county library has newer books. She reads much more than I like actually. It has become a hobby for her and I find her on her bed with a book constantly. I believe too much reading can make you lazy. She has expressed that she would like to become a librarian though, insha Allah.
While we were at the library yesterday, I ran into a sister with her two children. She requested that Jamilah suggest some books for her daughter (8 years old) who is also a bookworm. Jamilah just loved that and felt right in her element.
Jennah didn’t venture out with me to the library as she wasn’t feeling so well yesterday. Spring allergies are kicking in here. She did finish her chosen book, Sarah Plain and Tall, which she will complete her written assignment about today. She also has a simple machine test to study for in addition to word study.
The weather was rainy this weekend, so there wasn’t much else for them to do anyway.
