A Week Has Passed

It seems like so much time has passed since Eid. I forgot to show you some of the birds that we saw during the bird show last week. There were hawks (which are surprisingly loud), a barn owl, and an American Eagle.

Not sure if I got a picture of the hawk....We got back into our routine but everyone was still distracted.


My husband and I humored the kids a bit and took them to their favorite playground.

They would spend the whole day there if they could!

Surah Kahf at the Park


My oldest is now starting multiplication and MashaALLAH she's doing well. InshaALLAH in the coming weeks I will have her complete copywork pages for it so that she can memorize the multiplication table.


We're Doing Multiplication Now


I found a chart for multiplication at Montessori Materials. There is a control chart as well as a blank chart for her to fill in. She can use a dry erase marker and then compare her answers when she is finished. I think that I will have her complete this and then next week start timing her, InshaALLAH.

The younger two are learning shapes and colors so we used the math bears for counting and sorting and the geoboards to stretch their minds a bit, lol (I'm terrible at jokes).

Creating Shapes II

Oh, and I managed to finally finish an Eid gift (from last year, SubhanALLAH) for my son.


Aran Sweater

I just kept procrastinating and the pregnancy was tough and so on. I finished the back piece (the easy part, lol) in between other projects over six months or so and the rest I did in the past eight days!

AlhamduLILLAH he likes it and it still fits.

Child's Aran Sweater

It's the Child's Aran Pullover from Caron International. It's still a bit big because it's a size six. Now, the oldest wants one "tomorrow", lol.

Love the photography, masha'Allah. The birds are cool! I forgot about those counting bears. I should probably take mine out for my little one.

As salaamu 'alaikum Umm Omar,

JazakILLAH Khairin, sometimes with photography I get it right. The bird show was really cool! The barn owl was my fave for sure.

Take care,
wa salaam,
