Alhamdulillah, I am happy to report Hashem has been feeling much better. His lungs have cleared up and he seems to be healing. I am just so anxious for him as he is so fragile though. May Allah protect him.
This week was full of activities for everyone. My parents returned from a month long trip to Mexico and came by midweek to spend some time with the children. Isa and I met up with a sister and her two children and explored an animal farm, Maymont Park. Hannah and Jamilah prepared food for Arts Night at their school. They made fried plantains and a fruit salad.
Yahya completed his last hands – on dental scholars workshop where he made some impressions. Next session is the closing session. Overall, he enjoyed it and I hope he considers this field as a career.
Yesterday, the girls and I met up with the other Muslim family for Girl Scouts. The little ones completed a braille activity while the older girls just hung out. In the afternoon, Jamilah volunteered her time at the library testing a game called Artemis. This is a multi player battleship game that the library is considering loading on their computers.
The schedule for some of the summer classes and activities are now available, so I have been busy looking a dates. We will have to narrow down and cut out some things as many activities conflict with each other. We can’t do everything.
