Eid ilUm, means Mother's Day in Arabic, which is celebrated in Jordan on March 21st. The boys had a Mother's Day concert at school and it was super cute. Here's lots of videos. Caleb had his show on Monday. Each child in the class read a short poem, then they talked about a special moment with their mom, from a picture they drew. Caleb's special moment with mom was when I took him to my office, which was over a year ago!

Caleb's class singing the french song.
We were so proud of the great job Caleb did. He's come a long way this past year overcoming his fear of being on stage!
Benjamin's show was on Tuesday. His class sang songs and also said something they love about their mom. It was so sweet.
The Jordanian National Anthem - Ashen Malik - Long live the King
After the show, their class had an art exhibition to show off their work. It was really nicely put together and fun to see what Benjamin has been working on this past year. And here are the Americans in his class, William, Felicity, Mary, Lydia, and Mr. Benjamin. As Benjamin likes to say, it's his 3 girlfriends :)
So blessed to be a mom to our sweet boys! Happy Jordanian Mother's Day!
