Sabbath Siblings

This past weekend was pretty low key. Our new Saturday morning routine is that Dave takes Sam to Religious School at the synagogue and then he takes Rachel to music. Every other Saturday he will also take her to Tot Shabbat. My role is to stay at home and have four glorious hours to myself! Yay! This past weekend I dealt with all the school forms which came home last week. Above are Sam and Rachel on their way out on Saturday morning.
Then we went to Dave's parents' house for supper on Saturday night. We had an pre-Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) celebration. All of us took turns blowing the shofar. We have videos but I won't share them with you. You're welcome :)
Rachel's intense expression is because she is actually getting a noise out of the shofar. It's really hard to blow it so I was really impressed.
I don't know what is happening here, but I had to post this picture because of the expression on my face!
Above are the kids on Sunday morning. Sam decided he was a gorilla, and as you can tell, he did a fairly good job of it! Ha ha ha!

So that was our weekend -- lots of pictures of the kids posing on our front steps, some shofar blowing, and a gorilla. I can't wait to see what this weekend brings!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! I hope that this one is too.

  2. 4 hours to yourself! How exciting :-) I love Sam's gorilla face.

  3. Glad you have some time alone. I really like the picture of you...too cute! :)

  4. Her outfit is so cute, and Sam nailed the gorilla face.

    (I want to say Tot Shabbat out loud over and over.) :D


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
