Assalaamu alaikum! It's been a long while since I've blogged. Since Ramadaan, a few other brothers/sisters and my husband and I have joined efforts to start a Muslim Outreach Center here in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. It's physical location is in Norfolk, VA. Bi 'ithnillah, we intend to provide free social services for our brothers and sisters and also run a food pantry for the public community. Alhamdulillah, this project has developed so quickly and has kept us all so busy. By Allah's mercy, we are moving into our building in a week! Check out our website! Let me know what you think, in sha Allah!
Right now, my family and I are on a much needed vacation, Alhamdulillah! We've visited Luray Caverns in Luray, VA and Shenandoah Valley; beautiful, scenic towns not too far from DC. Once we get home it'll be serious school time, in sha Allah. My oldest daughter is testing out K12's Virtual Academy for her 6th grade year (because it's the last year they offer it for FREE! LOL). Surprisingly, she has become very independent and taking charge of her schooling. She knows exactly what needs to be accomplished and has three teachers she has to answer to that is NOT her mother! LOL!
