The weeks just float on by and before you know it, months and then years have gone by! Last weekend was jam-packed one (and it was nearly a week ago) but I have to tell you about it! My sister-in-law, our collective kids and I went to this wonderful 'Eid party. It was hosted by the daughter of this creative soul ma sha Allah, who very generously let us gather with our gangs of children, at her home. We were welcomed and led to the garden where we found a number of craft stations waiting for the children. We lounged with old friends and mingled with new ones while our kids started with creating little name tags for themselves.
We sipped Mauritanian green tea while we guided our kids from one station to another. By the end of that, they'd made their own friends and we caught up with ours.
Oh there was some lovely, drool-worthy stationery for simple book-making! Then there was beautiful face-painting, some gorgeous paper flowers being made along with decorative felt crowns and the most delightful little cupcakes. The kids loved it!
And to top it all off, a swim and a barbecue! Don't you love seeing kids roll in to bed, tired but happy? Ma sha Allah!
