These last 2 weeks of Summer Fun were filled with adventures of all kinds. Melita sang with us, we made challah dough (today's loaves featured dates, lemon, and our very local garden herbs), and had visits from Collin and Ofra!
Come visit our finger paint gallery!
Garden news: The corn is much taller than Ruth! We have transplanted a few herbs for better sun exposure, and our borage is much loved by friendly bees doing their work. The lettuce is delicious, the kale is much bigger, and herbs are plentiful.
Bikkur Cholim: Those bees I mentioned led to a wonderful lesson in the mitzvah of caring for the sick. One child stepped on a bee, and was very sad. Friends surrounded her to sing songs, offer comfort, and even use the stethoscope to check on her. She requested the song "Let It Go," and by the next morning, she did!
We love seeing the healthy lunches kids are bringing--keep 'em coming! We can strive for "zero-waste" lunches: using reusable containers is wonderful. We serve milk and water (water is available throughout the day), and you can send a water bottle if you like--better than juice!
Thanks for being mindful of gates and doors to help us all feel safe--much appreciated!
Clear out cubbies of wet clothing--water play is popular.
Bring back sheets on Mondays--we need 'em.
Shabbat Shalom Umevorach,
Judy, Simone, Vered, and Ruth
