Spring Steps Along Slowly As Life Cycles On

Today was a rather chilly spring day, with temperatures in the 30s accompanied by a cold wind.

It was also the last day of the kids' religious school. So, at the end of the classes this morning we had a small ceremony. Awards were given to students for perfect attendance, which our kids didn't quite have.

Leah, in lieu of perfect attendance, won a far more meaningful award: She won first place in her age group for an essay she had written for an all-school competiion, which was a very nice ending to her religious school year.

At the end of the ceremony, as part of commemorating and celebrating Lag B'Omer, we headed to outside the synagogue and a traditional bonfire was made, and the kids made smores.

A nice way to end a religious school year that passed by really fast.
