Hawwa and Siddiqah had seen poster advertisements for the annual Sheep to Shawl event at school and begged us to go. We had been a couple of times within the last several years and were not really too excited about it, but we took them anyway and they enjoyed it.
As the children grow older and we have more children of multiple ages, it seems to get more difficult to please everyone as far as family outings go. Teenagers aren’t interested in the same things the younger children like especially if there are no friends involved. It is starting to become a struggle. May Allah make us stay close as a family.
