Swim Class: No More Parent Tot

Swim Class: No More Parent Tot

We are missing swim class. Sanyu has really bad eczema that flairs up from the chlorine from the pool so we have to take a break to give her skin a rest. It’s pretty crazy. This was my last parent tot swimming class with Ali. […]

Ali Turns Three!

Ali Turns Three!

Ali celebrated his third birthday on Monday, July 17, 2017. We celebrated at home. I always like to take a million pictures of the children during special occasions and on their birthdays. Here are some of the photos I took of Ali on his birthday. […]

The Los Angeles African Wedding Expo

The Los Angeles African Wedding Expo

Last Sunday the children and I attended the Los Angeles African Wedding Expo. My sister Mekka was one of the models. I thought it would be nice to get the kids out around some other “Africans.” The kids had a blast. Sanyu even was among the selected few that one best dress… I’m sure Ali would’ve been on the list if he dressed in what I prepared for him. Sadly didn’t have much time to get myself together. Here are some of our family photos from the event. I will be posting more photos from the expo on my photography website Saharra White Photography. (more…)

Memorial Day: Kite Flying

Memorial Day: Kite Flying

Yesterday I took the kids outside to fly kites. We started in our front yard which didn’t work that well. We decided to move over to the vacant land nearby. Sanyu started out saying she hated kites. Once we got the kites in the air […]

Food Post: Apples at the Park

Whenever I take my children out I try to pack food for my babies that is healthy. We often take fruit with us on our outings. What do you pack?

I’m Excited About Story Time

I’m Excited About Story Time

sanyu_library

Today I will be taking Ali to his first story time. Well, technically the story time is for Sanyu. She’s been going to story time since she was six months. This will be the second time we are attending story time at the library near my mother’s house. Since we moved into my parents house in February we haven’t been visiting the library that often.

The library isn’t right around the corner like it was before. We actually have to get in a car and drive there. My daughter got used to going to story time every day in our neighborhood. Sadly, this library only offers two story times a week.

Now that Sanyu will be taking more classes including ballet and now soccer I’m adding a visit to library as part of her regular schedule as well. I know she enjoys reading. If you come into our house, she will give you five books to read to her. I want to continue to take her to the library as well as read to her more often. I want her to continue to be passionate about reading. I just hope all my family members will stop running away when she brings them a book. LOL.

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

I know I’m bad. The last time I’ve posted on here was in October. So much has happened in my life since then. I found out I was pregnant in October. I moved out of my old house in February. My uncle died in April. […]
