Here's what we've been up to for the last days of school ...
In honor of Shavuot, we read stories of Ruth, Mount Sinai, and the giving of the Torah. We celebrated all things wheaty, from wheat grass (we're growing our own) to cheesecake with dates (milk and honey to the max). We examined a Sefer Torah/Torah scroll and learned about the atzei chayim/wooden rollers that support it (and us)!
The last few days of school were punctuated by another "beach day," collage making, shaving cream construction, and spending time with Melita and Menachem. Of course, our BaDerech ceremony, picnic in the new yard, and our final closing circle gave us a chance to smile, laugh, and cry.
B'hatzlacha/Great success to our friends moving on to K, transitional K, and Israel!
We wish you all a happy and safe summer!
Judy, Ruth, and Ofra
