A post!

Assalaamu alaikum πŸ™‚

Its been ages since I last posted, I had hit a blogging slump, life got hectic, camera was stolen, laptop charger broke (which was a mercy as I had been spending too much time online). It was easy to just not post.

Please forgive me if you were a reader and I just went AWOL. I have missed blogging and now that I have my hardware back up to scratch I hope to get right back into the saddle and spend less time fussing with slide show galleries and more time sharing our homeschool moments!

I still read and tried to keep up with the blogs but was using Hub’s laptop so signing-in to comment was a mission!

Alhamdulillah we are all well keeping up with our learning activities and surviving the toddlerhood! Sakeenah has grown into a force to be reckoned with, a danger magnet who will not be contained! Allah u a’lam…I am so happy with my girls coz I don’t know what I would have done with three boys if my girls are so daring!

Imaan is coming along steadily we are spending more time with Hifdh, Arabic, and Islamic studies as I feel I have not concentrated enough on the most important subjects. Zahra is also moving swiftly masha Allah, her reading is doing well but her handwriting is still developing so the Montessori style activities still suits her.

Scheduling is an ongoing battle with us as I want to follow the flow of their learning but it clashes with my 1 year old’s need for destruction. Her unpredictable escapades has truly been the most overwhelming force the last few months! Like I said we are surviving toddlerhood! Insha Allah soon she will be more interested in her own activities and less interested in distracting the girls! (Ameen!)

I don’t have many pics of the work we have been doing, just doing the work has been an accomplishment in itself!

We are in the Southern Hemisphere so Winter is truly upon us. It only snows on a few mountain ranges here in the Cape but it is still freezing cold as we do not have central heating and we usually rely on hot water bottles and/or heaters.

Here are a few winter pics around Cape Town.
