Everyone is having a LOT of fun playing in the dirt, our yard looks like it has been shelled.

Plus my aunts and uncles LOL, please ukht congratulate on my behalf to you daughter and son and give her a big busa! May Allâh protect all your family ameen Khadijah on November 1, 2011 3:06 am Reply Oh yes, the children LOVE this part of the project. I was impressed how the younger ones figured out how to mold the walls without extra reading. The older ones, of course, are reading everything they can on mud and cob building. We have lived in more than one mud house here in Yemen, and I love them- they make you feel safe, alhamdulillah, solid and strong and earthy. Eleven cousins! The benefits of having a large family- more people to play with, mash’Allaah. Oum Assia on April 16, 2012 9:11 am Reply Mashalah , so nice and so natural ! alahuma barik .
