Butterflies!!!!

On our way home from swim class my DD pointed out to a number of basil plants by the side of the street ....asking me "what are those flying things Mommy"

We inspected the plants & masha Allah we saw the most amazing butterflies flying around the basil drinking the nectar out of the flowers...



The girls were so excited at the sight of the butterflies...we even tried touching them...

Everone knows that finding these natural phenomenon is very hard in the city ....so we were quite enthusiastic ...

here are some pics I took of the grand event !!!

I hate FB!!!


My FB account got deleted ....I don't know how or who did it ..it just happened...I couldn't access the acount for over 2 weeks ...I kept sending them emails asking what the problem was....I got no response ...they have one of the worst services I have seen!!!


Now I lost my acount of 3 years ...all my pics ,notes & 170 friends are all gone...I'm very sad ...because I had friends from school & college in my friend's list...I don't even have their emails.....


Of course I couldn't resist making another acount & re-inviting everyone to join my list...I'm just addicted....


I guess it is a love-hate relationship

I LUV ladybird books.....

I just got my oldest DD this nice book from Ladybird about grammar and punctuation....

I can speak English very well but I always felt that I'm not very strong in the grammar and spelling. I hesitated to teach my oldest these subjects ,but when I saw this book it gave me a kind of confidence that I can do it.

She is really enjoying it very much ...it has stickers & is very colorful.

Another set that we use is the Read It Yourself series ...we have Level 1 series ...it is a collection of 6 books ...they are very easy and suitable for early readers
