And we’re back!!!

  Bismillaah. Alhamdu lillaah we made it through Screen Free Week!  It was certainly not as difficult as I had expected, alhamdu lillaah.  I’m so proud of my munchkins as they really outdid themselves  and exceeded my expectations mashaa Allaah.

If members of the family have busy schedules with school and work, it also gives everyone a break from the everyday drab of daily life, just enjoying being with the ones you love. But family … Continue reading
