Bacterial Cell Poster for School

Assalamu Alaikum!
Sumayyah here, and today I will be showing you my Bacterial Cell poster that I did for school a few weeks ago.
I made it with my Mother, she helped it to look very nice, masha'Allah. It was her idea to use felt and my idea to use the small pink beads.
It was a lot of fun to make, masha'Allah, and my teacher was very happy with the effort put into it.
This week I have finished two other projects for school, and insha'Allah I will share them with you soon. Until then!

Wasalaam,

Sumayyah

Our 2019 Summer Holiday (Part 2)

Assalamu Alaikum everyone!
We're back with the second and final part of our summer holiday post. This time it is mostly celebrating the beauty and splendour of Allah's creations: Nature and it's greenery.
While on holiday we spent a week at a holiday home, as we mentioned in part 1, in Devon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves masha'Allah. The home we featured in the previous part; this time it's about the garden where we spent most of our time.
Masha'Allah the landscape was just beautiful and the weather was lovely and warm.
Our Mother really liked the flower bed arrangement, so we made sure to take lots of photos for inspiration.
We took a few road-trips through Dartmoor, and stopped to look at the wild Dartmoor ponies.
We went on several walks through the nearby peaceful woods which was always fun alhamdulillah.
There was a river nearby the home and we had fun racing stick in the rapids!
Sometimes we took strolls immediately after praying Fajar, when the sun was still asleep and the details of the woods difficult to make out. And then we would make it back home, in time to watch the sunrise and see all the pretty butterflies come out.
Masha'Allah we are so grateful to have had this holiday and to have enjoyed ourselves so much. How did you spend your holiday? Did you go somewhere special? Did you spend it with family? We would love to know!
Well, that is all we have for you today. Insha'Allah we will see you next Friday again.
Love and wasalaam,
