This past week, and it looks this week as well, has been super busy. My French friend, Cyril, is in town. I haven't seen him since 1996 so the visit is long overdue. He came with Nutella and crepes so...I am double-y happy!
Speaking of seeing friends...the Bright family and ours were FINALLY able to get together this past Shabbat. I was tired and not all together on my game, but they were even more tired than me I think so I hope it went unnoticed. Poor Yeshiya (their son who is three weeks older than Neviyah)...Neviyah harassed him the whole time! She stole his snacks, drink and toys over and over again, chased him when he was able to get them back and then exclaimed at the end of the day--after Yesh gave her his sippy cup--"Look Mama, I sharing with Yeshiyah!" Despite traumatizing Yeshiya, she woke up the next morning and the first words out of her mouth were "I need to play with Yeshiya." Clearly, she had a good time!
Ice skating is over for Alia. I really feel like she needs to be involved with something because she does have such a hard time fitting in. I want her to have something that she can excel at, enjoy or just plain feel connected to. Perhaps she could also make friends! We haven't found that right thing yet for her.
Chandler read Torah Saturday and did a great job. He has joined the Yad Squad, an incentive program at our shul to encourage young teens to participate in the mitzvah of reading Torah.
I can't believe that Purim is this weekend. Rachael and I are making our annual Hamantaschin cookies on Friday. I am getting so old that I am already having sympathy back pains for myself. I really want to try a new diabetic recipe but I also don't want to have to rebake more if they turn out yucky.
Pesach is right around the corner...how did this happen?!? Time is speeding by!
