I am feeling quite relaxed this evening.My exams are almost over, two down and one to go! I did well and so far I received only one of the two exams outcome and I passed! Mash'Allah wa hamdulillah!
So this evening, after a long day in central London sitting in a big hall with lots of other students, I decided to sit and rest a bit. Just browsing around and catching up with others' blogs and forums. Kids are in bed reading their books. Baby is fast asleep and the house is quite! Just what my brain and body need right now.
This week has been a very hectic one for me and family all. My preparation to the exams took all my time and that meant little homeschooling and lots of fun for the kids! Not much fun for me that I took my course books literally every where we went!
Following are some of the activities in pics.
So now all I have to do is 'the List':
-kids attended a workshop in the British Museum about Islamic tiling and produced some nice tiles, hubby joined too for the first time!;
-We took our potatoes out the ground and made a nice summer salad with them, really delicious!;
-one more picnic in Regents Park, kids enjoyed the weather in the playground.
Quran and Arabic was on as usual and we carried on using the tafseer booklets. We are also re-reading the stories of the prophets and S. is joining in with Qs. and As. quiz.
Swimming and wrestling has carried on as normal and soon they will have an exam to check their abilities in both sport. A new tournament is on the horizon...
For now it's about it! Happy home education to all and enjoy the weather! :)
Great weather for a picnic
Kids tiles up on their bedroom wall Some more tiles from other children and adults too ;) A.'s tiles, before you ask the red one are roses not hearts and the blue dots are not baloons but leaves!
S.'s tiles some flowers and leaves
In the process...
