Rainy Days of Seattle

Yes, it is here, the rainy days of Seattle. We have had two days of rain so far. I'm praying it will ease up at least for tomorrow for girls' day out. I want to go to the Turkish Festival with some friends and it will not be much fun if it is raining, we are also planning on taking a stroll on Alki beach. Strolling and rain do not go hand in hand! But I have to say, the rain has done wonders for the grass in the backyard! :D When it comes to gardening, I have NO thumb, let alone a green one!

Yay!!! I'm officially CDA-ified!

Yes, that is correct! I received my certificate in the mail after what felt like FORVER! but yes, i'm officially certified child development associate. My certification is good for 3 years :) and now I feel like I can really give my students the best I can:) though, I have never done less than that! but it is nice to have a certificate. Now, I'm motivated to move on and finish my degree in early childhood education!

Happy Birthday Mas!!!

Yesterday we celebrated my middle sister's 30th birthday! We did it by having a 'hijab' party! It was lots of fun! A friend from Tacoma came down with a wonderful collection of her hijabs and abayas to display. Almost everyone bought something, even my non-muslim co-worker!! Food, fun, shopping and cake, the ideal birthday party!! It was such a hit, another friend is planning a hijab party for her birthday! :D
