School in session

School isn't really fully in session until the kids are back in Sunday School! Today was the first day of the 2015-16 school year at the Birmingham Islamic Society's Weekend Islamic School, and the boys were thrilled to be back. Even more exciting was that Mohsin joined this year too!

Bilal loves Sunday School; he enjoys the learning and instruction, but he loves the social aspect of it. He gets to spend time with friends that he only sees on the weekends, and very rarely at all over the summer. Today was a great start to the school year, hopefully it is a sign of how things will go for the rest of the year too!

Outside of both schools, Bilal is on a great reading kick right now. He started reading Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan over the summer, as one of the fourth grade recommended books, and now he is on to book three of the series already. He is determined to become a member of the school's millionaire club (having read one million words during the school year) as soon as he possibly can. So he is making use of his typical early morning awakenings by squeezing in some quality reading time. And it gives Mama a bit of a chance for a lie in on the weekends too. Win-win for both of us!
