Astughfirullah, I need to keep better tabs on my site, I have been so neglectful lately. I knew I would be busy with College but I didnt think this busy alhamdulillah! Sooooooo on with the updates!
Okay so with ds, he is throughly enjoying private school and his Quran memorization is coming along beautifuly mashaAllah. He has made many friends their and it is nice for me too, to make friends with the other mothers. He now has orange belt in karate alhamdulillah, working his way on up. We were actually considering whether or not to drop the karate because Mondays is also our day to carpool and it is a half hour each way. Alhamdulillah ds does not want to give it up, he tells me it makes him feel so good when he gets a new belt… he has gotten nine already (they started with full white, then moved on the white-coloured stripe, then finally solid colours). I think he just is excited because he is almost six inshaAllah, and once he is six, he gets to train with nunchucks. lol.
Dd is doing well alhamdulillah. Cancer screen came back negative alhamdulillah. We had her hearing tested and the best results they could get was that she has mild hearing loss in her one ear, and sever in her other ear subhanAllah. Allah give her shiffah. In the meantime, we are going to go for a followup and talk some more about hearing aids and cochlear implants. Other than that, she is progressing well alhamdulillah and catching up to my friends daughters who are her age.
Home schooling. That now has new meaning for us. I think it has turned more into ‘after-school schooling’. Alhamdulillah now that I am in College full time with over forty hours a week, we dont have much time for anything. We did, however, go apple picking at the orchard with seven other families today so that made for a nice autumn field trip mashaAllah. It began with me in a tree (long story, Im not even going to go there – lets just say that the apples that were left were pretty high up the trees) and ds and dd feeding a horse apples. Oh and this weekend (at another orchard- we went orchard hopping this weekend) dd and ds rode horses for the first time alhamdulillah! That was wonderful mashaAllah. Oh and we are making chocolate covered apples and maybe pie again inshaAllah! My ds loves to help me in the kitchen these days.
