The last few days the weather has been dusty and windy. The cars are covered in a layer of dirt. This morning Ibrahim and I decided we'd go shopping and when we got downstairs we had to dust off the car's windows befor we left. The car needs washing but it will have to wait until after the weather clears.
While we were outside wiping off the car windows my sister-in-law hung out her kitchen window and told us that my other sister-in-law gave birth to a baby boy around 1am. Now she has one daughter and four sons. I'm waiting for her to get home from the hospital to visit her.
Ibrahim got summer clothes; five pairs of shorts, eight t-shirts and underwear. Now all he needs are sandals and he will be set to go. We also stopped at the toystore and got him a yellow rubber ball to play with. I told him that it was for playing with outside, but as I type this I hear the ball bouncing off the walls in the living room (and crashing into the wall unit). This afternoon we will venture out to get the sandals. We're not going to let the dusty weather stop us from our shopping mission.
The kids are still studying for exams. They study and stop for a snack and then study some more... the kitchen is non-stop crumbs and mess from sandwiches. I guess studying works up appetites.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day in America. I am hoping that my sister Kristen has her baby tomorrow - it would be nice to have a baby on Mother's Day. I hope all the mothers who read my blog have a wonderful day. Happy Mother's Day!!
