Ruhi Book 3 celebration
This (photo below) is our wonderful study circle. One thing we loved about this group is that we had people of all ages, from Fazal to young people in elementary, middle and high schools and several adults. It was really nice to get input in all our discussions from such a wide range of participants.
Fazal took NO naps today (I can't remember the last time, if ever, he has done this) so by the end of the evening he was really winding up and winding down, and koko was helping a lot! At one point, he just started shrieking at the top of his lungs, just for the fun of it, sending the kids into fits of laughter. He did this for several minutes, I think just out of sheer tiredness, until we took him outdoors, where he continued to scream and run around in the cold for quite a while until he finally got it out of his system ;-)

Fazal's First Trip to Boston
This is bell-ringer man. Fazal liked him because he was ringing the bell for Salvation Army right next to where we found a miracle parking spot (yes, right in the middle of Newbury Street). He was a very friendly guy, and it seemed, happy to have people to talk to on a cold day.
When we felt a little worn out, we stopped at a tea shop, which is cute and has a lot of character, but no space for children. Fazal sat on our laps and everything was within his reach - thus, the funny photo of me below trying to get a sip of my tea without having Fazal grab it out of my hand....Finally, as it was getting dark, we made it to the Boston Common, a huge park in the middle of the city. I wanted Fazal to be able to run around on the grass and wear himself out before we got back into the car for our 1.5 hour drive home AND I wanted him to see the Make Way for Ducklings sculptures. Do you know the famous children's book of that title? Here are some photos with the bronze duckies.
