I consider the first week back to school the week of madness! Getting the kids back in to a proper routine, early wake up calls and helping them have a smooth transition back into school is so overwhelming. How did you and your kids handle it ?
Of course part of our yearly tradition is taking a first day photos. This year instagram was over populated with proud mommies and daddies showing off their little ones going to school. I decided to do something different and I asked my kids what they wanted to be when they grow up ? I wrote them down on a piece of paper and had them take a picture with it. I think I’m going to keep doing this every year.
We decided not to travel this Eid and head to Wafra instead. It was a great week filled with some old fashioned fun, yummylicious food and great weather. It got really cold at night but starting a fire always does the trick in keeping everyone warm and cozy. The kids had a fabulous time, running outside from sunrise to sunset and never getting tired of it. Bikes, scooters, hide and seek, bouncy castles, arts & crafts, you name it, they played it
Here are some shots taken during the week.
It was the perfect break! Hope you all had a fabulous holiday as well.
I have been putting off going to the super market for the last three days due to the fact that during Ramadan the super markets are considered a war zone! Today, I had a few free hours in the morning so I decided to take Fizzle and get it over and done with. I grabbed my shopping cart cover and off we went.
*The thought of how many people touched the carts just in Ramadan gives me the shivers! LOL
Shopping cart covers are available at Oleana Boutique
Today we went on a little hiking trip as part of outdoor summer holiday. McFizzle had the best seat. Snuggled up in his carrier with a great view of everything.
It was a fabulous day for a hike. The weather was perfect, a little bit hot at some point but then a cool breeze would pass and make it all better. I actually got a nice tan from it as well.
Nodi decided today that it is time for him to start riding a 2 wheeler bike. Nodi and his dad headed to the garage took off the training wheels and got straight to work. It’s not as easy as it looks!
Wish him luck
McFizzle is addicted to this song! The first thing he says when he gets into the car: Mama, di din. lol
McFizzle is into playing hide and seek at the moment. Here are some of his favorite hiding places.
Behind the curtains with his toes peeking out
Laying on top of the cushion with his face covered. He thinks he is invisible! too cute!!
The one thing I miss most about Nodi & McFizzle being babies is being able to carry them in the sleepy wrap. The closeness and warmth you feel walking around with them is unexplainable. I loved it!
It’s official, my little McFizzle can climb up anything! :/
It’s funny how 2 brothers are totally different. Nodi was never like this. He was calm, and very mature for his age.
McFizzle on the other hand is a different story!
الله يحفظهم يا رب
