Progress Report

2 0 0 7

It's almost half of year 2007 gone which reminded me of this entry I posted before the new year.
And guess what? I have not started anything substantial to add to my personal resume this year. Yes there was self-talk about picking up another language [Khadijah needs a sparring partner for French but then Yusof is not doing that great with his Arabic at school and Khadijah has been out of touch with Arabic for almost six months now] but this thought has not materialised. So I have decided (isn't this very autocratic?? Some time you need to be ! LOL) that all of us at home (minus Umar) learn Arabic to add to each of our personal resume this year!
I spoke to the Ustaz who teaches my kids read the Quran, a month an a half ago, to teach us Arabic and he had agreed but I have yet to give him the commencement date.
OK it's time to put the rubber to the road and walk the talk....!!! Will update on this!

excellent! It's much more fun when the whole family does it together, and you guys can practice simple verses with one another. Can even play games of sorts. Hope it'll be fruitful.

on my mind certainly constantly
