Day 3........ Sintra ❤️💛
So much walking. So much heat. But the Moorish Castle and the Pena Palace were worth every single second. Even the 6am start! Both of the places were unlike anything we’ve seen thus far. What is more amazing is to think that once upon a time this place was ruled by Muslims. Check out the instastories for some more gorgeous photos.
Alhamduilliah! Today was the day I finally felt normal again. I totally left it to my child to lead what kind of homeschooling day we were going to have. I’m an absolute lover of asking the children what they would like to do ? Please input this in your homeschooling as the child learns so much from things that interest them more than us. Today it was Chemistry 👌🏽 Yes! I was like ok were shall I start Subhan Allah. Then it was let’s do it in the park with a picnic Allahu Akbar! What a day Subhan Allah. We started of by talking about atoms and molecules experimenting with our bottle of water with lemons that we took with us. We spoke about all different types of materials and looked at many in the park. Then we talked about the actual job of a chemist and what they do Alhamduilliah! Tomorrow we plan on doing some more little experiments of mixing materials to see what happens In Shaa Allah. We used two books as you can see here The Collins knowledge book (her favourite) and the Collins encyclopaedia Masha Allah two great books. We didn’t use any pens pencils or paper. It was just a nice relaxing lesson in the park. We did use some letters for spelling like chemistry etc that was fun you can see them on the next post. Overall I’m back in to my mummy role of feeling lost yesterday Alhamduilliah! If you still feel like that take a long stroll in the park with a picnic or bikes and scooters it will definitely help In Shaa Allah.
Back to the grind now that Eid is over! After such a busy Ramadan, having the few days of Eid to relax was really nice! But now it’s back to work and getting things back on schedule, especially our sleep. 😭 Hopefully I can get Zakariyya down for his nap by noon, I had to wake him up at 8 and he didn’t want to, so I caved and let him sleep in till 9. 😅 Also, these Banana Walnut Muffins from Adonis in #Mississauga are so good. My son has already claimed this one as his. 😂
