Today's Trend

Moody learning Arabic
Originally uploaded by dregias.
Yesterday, we had a picnic with some Libyan friends. It was very nice and the kids definitely had lots of fun… Tala and Moody stayed in bed till 7:30 this morning—this has not been happening lately!

Apparently, Anes’s dad was teaching him some Arabic before the picnic. So when they got there, Anes asked Moody if he is learning Arabic too. Today Moody would not put down the Arabic laptop that he got from Grandma Safia. A good sign--maybe--that he will take more to learning Arabic.

It was nice to see how well the kids got along. At some point, Moody did not like (to put it mildly) being around kids (and some adults too) of Libyan families; the reasons being the language barrier and the rough play and handling.

  5. Khadija, it looks like we're "trading places" you and I. An American in Libya, and a Libyan in America. The common thing is being married to Libyans with bal waseh (very)... Very interesting, I'd say, to see how our lives progress. Apparently, you are having as much fun as I am.

    Noor, hmmmmmmm... which one are you from the dozens of peeps I'm supposed to send email? Help me out please. Noor and 3asfoor (scratching my head!)
