Summer Travels

I am going to be taking a leave of absence for most of the remainder of the summer. The boys and I are flying back home for a few weeks later this week. So most of my days are being spent packing.. I am looking forward to attending a very close friends wedding and the boys with get a chance to bond with family.. especially cousin's who are waiting anxiously. While most of my family have met D.. this will be his third trip.. though the first in his mind, he doesn't remember the other two. No one but my parents and brother have met H. 


What I am not looking forward to his the airport and flying 16 hours solo with the two boys.. D shouldn't be much of a problem.. I am packing many activities for the flight.. but H is a bit of a wild card.. send me happy thoughts!!

M will join us towards the end to join in on the wedding festivities.. and then on our way back we have picked a new European country to explore :)

I hope to share some of our trip on Instagram so follow along.

Have a wonderful summer vacation.. I'll see you all when we get back.

lately

We are currently toward the tail end of the holy month of Ramadan.. as of today we have one week of fasting left. For those of you not aware of what Ramadan is, well it is a month where we fast from dawn to dusk.. so at present approximately beginning around 4 am and ending around 8:30 pm. During the fast no food of any kind is permitted. And while I know the hours seem long it's not really all that hard.. it takes a day or two to get used to it and then you can hardly tell.. I personally miss food just because food is awesome but there is not a lot of I'm too hungry to function type of scenarios.

We are also celebrating a birthday this month.. D turned the 6 on Thursday :) Since we were all fasting.. minus the kids of course.. we will be taking a rain check on the family celebrations.. but the big boy started his day off with some whip cream covered MnM pancakes. And D continued the celebrations with an ice cream party at school.


Friday was D's last day of school.. in a few months we he starts public school and I'm not sure if I'm ready for that just yet :( When I asked him if he was sad he asked 'sad about what?'



 Saturday was graduation.. 




Each child was supposed to create a centerpiece for graduation about themselves from infancy to now.. 


But before the year ended D's kindergarten class put on a little art show.. below are some of the class's work and the ones that D did.

Van Gogh


Jackson Pollak


Piet Mondrian

Monet


 Picasso

New Jersey's Grounds for Scultpure

With D's Kindergarten year coming to an end their class decided to visit the Ground of Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. I had been meaning to check it out for sometime now so I was excited when I found out it was going to be a family trip. We left H at home with the grandparents.. and though we arrived late D had an exam at his Saturday Islamic school that he couldn't skip :( We stayed even after everyone left and I'm already thinking we need to plan another visit sometime in fall. If you have never been to a sculpture park you must add it to you list of things to do..

Now get ready for a ton of pictures!
