At this point I feel like my main job is being a scheduler for the children and coordinator of their activities. Trying to fit all of their needs into the weekly schedule is challenging.
It has been a bit slower recently due to the “holidays.” Hannah and Jamilah went to stay with my parents and worked on their applications including essays to the high school specialty centers. They hope to finish up the application over the winter break coming up in a couple of weeks. Yahya just worked a few extra hours over the break. He is attempting to save up for a driver’s ed course.
Isa’s preschool is over until January. I hope to be able to sign him up through the winter and spring. He really enjoyed the fall sessions and misses this twice a week excursion.
Jennah and Hawwa are working very hard in school. Hawwa earned straight As for this last nine weeks. Jennah also earned honor roll for this last nine weeks. This week her teacher awarded her a plate for her behavior and hard work in the class.
