blink
New school, High holidays, being sick the whole Sukot, work overload - I am working for the downtown team again - and here is December and the last second realization that this year X-mas and Boxing day are Thursday and Friday, creating a 4 day long weekend. However, we stayed at home. And staying home has never been more fun!Collapse )

So, in preparation for shabat children's program in shul before 9 beAv I have made a few kohen outfits for the kids.
But I wanted to make a better organized play group, so I had a beit mikdash play date!Collapse )
22nd-Sep-2014 01:47 am - Midland cottage
blink
We rented a cottage at Balm beach for the week, as our friend from Florida had enough of us, so he sold his place.
I haven't been in Midland area since my bro and sis were little. Yaelly enjoyed the beach - I am a mermaid, I am a mermaid,
I will sleep in the sea with my dad Triton! Lots of sand castles and splashing and sitting on the rocks gazing into the blue waters.

8th-Sep-2014 03:08 am - Rosh haShana prep
blink
This Sunday we went together with Yaelly's friend to make a shofar - me and the friend's mom did it, and the kids enjoyed running around together and playing with balloons. They had a great presentation about the shofar and who's horns you make it from with example horns. He had a few horns to show: ram, bull, some african antelope - those were straight like a sword(not kosher because the shofar has to be turned upwards to G-d). Giraffe is a kosher animal, but the horns have skin growing on them - not kosher either. The rav had 3 animal heads too: 2 deer's and a ram. Yaelly enjoyed finding out that you can make a shofar from yael horns. The rav had yael horns to show: both horns together, not a shofar from such horn. So she ran around with fingers from her head saying I have horns!

Then we all went to our respective homes to have lunch and went together to a farm to pick apples. The most important thing about picking anything is to know when to stop. Last time we went to a farm we picked 3 times more than we could eat by ourselves!

So now we have apples for Rosh haShana and a hand made shofar.
Very Rosh HaShana preparational day :)

blink
Have gone camping solo with my daughter for the weekend to Six Miles Lake.
We slept in the tent, splashed in the lake and ran around the forest.
No pics, as most of it was during shabat, but it was so much fun!!!!!!!!
Now Yaelly camps in the basement, where she sleeps in the sleeping bag :)
