Keeping my head above the water!

Assalaamualaikum sisters!

Alhamdulillah I am back to blogging after a looong break LOL! All is good my side alhamdulillah. We had a homeschooling break for over a month as I had an opportunity to do a CELTA  course and after much prayer and Istihaara I was sitting in a classroom again! So alhamdulillah I am now CELTA certified to teach TEFL masha Allah.

It was a grueling month and I learnt so so much!  I was not sure I could manage it as I am quite a homebody, I mean I have been out of university since 2003!  But it was sink or swim and alhamdulillah I survived! It was tough managing the children’s needs, home life, fulltime studies and deal with the anxiety of preparing for teaching a class of 13 students! In the beginning the thought of teaching practise gave me nightmares and the 40 minutes seemed like forever but soon it became easier to cope, alhamdulillah!

The girls really missed homeschool as I didn’t have time to do any form of schooling but my sister-in-law took them swimming and did some art and craft and baking AND they spent time with their two grannies…so they had a wonderful time.

For the past month I have been recovering! We have been trying to get back into the flow of things, I am slowly finding my footing again 🙂 Sakeenah is 14 months…and is tearing my house down LOL!

On that note… I need to get back to work!
