We woke up this morning to the sound of pouring rain. Since I love rain I saw this as a good sign. Of course the sound of rain in the morning makes you want to crawl deeper under the blanket and stay there but this wasn't possible today - day one of Eid begins!
Hubby and number two son, Yusef, went off to the mosque wearing raincoats over their traditional Libyan clothes and the girls and I stayed home to get the rest of us dressed and straighten up the house. After the 'boys' came back from the mosque I took the annual Eid Day photo, this year minus number one son Adam who is in the US. Then off we went to my in-laws for the day.
The day was long, as I predicted it would be. But I was prepared with an assortment of things to do and games to keep the kids occupied. Fortunately the rain stopped and the small kids were able to go outside to play. All in all it was a peaceful day.
Eid Mubarak to all who celebrate!
